Comfort and Ease

The New Year swept in and brought Winter along.

Brrrr to cold winds, late sunrise and early sunsets. A perfect time for comfort food – the sort that makes us feel all warm and cozy on the inside regardless of the wind chill on the other side of the door.

Today I’d like to offer a dish of comfort and ease. Chili – can you smell it rich and spicy? I suspect you have eaten many different types for the recipes abound. Allow me to present one more.

One Chili:

Into a slow cooker or crock-pot put one of each of the following:

Can of diced tomatoes, can of light red kidney beans, can of dark red kidney beans, can of tomato sauce, can of tomato paste, pound of lean ground meat (beef, turkey, venison, or buffalo), envelope of chili seasoning mix.

Stir once, let simmer on low setting for 8-10 hours. Serve with your favorite bread or crackers.
