As I have examined before, I am not one to eat the same foods over and over. I can’t even do it with my favorite foods. However, I generally don’t cook in small portions.
Again this does involve a crock pot. We’re kinda lazy, and whatever I cook in the crock pot stays in until we eat all the leftovers or freeze them. This I just put the crock pot with leftovers back in the heater and cooked this meal.
• leftover red beans (we had about a half a pot)
• 1 can of black beans
• 1 can of stewed tomatoes
• 1 packet of chili seasoning
• 1 lb of ground beef
• 1 lb of ground hot sausage
• 1 cup of beef broth
Combine all ingredients in the crockpot. Cook on low for 8 hours, stirring occasionally.
If you used the previous red bean recipe to make your beans then your chili should not require too much additional seasoning.
The hot sausage in this recipe can be replaced with another type of ground sausage or more ground beef.
I like my chili with Frito chips and cheese. Others serve it with cornbread or crackers!
