2 lbs ground beef
2 medium onions, chopped
4 large garlic cloves, minced
2 green bell peppers, chopped
2 cans (14-oz) chili beans, do not drain
1 can (14-oz) diced tomatoes
1 can (4-oz) diced green chilies
1 tbsp oregano
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 cup beef broth
1 cup sour cream
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 tbsp green onions, sliced thin
Saute the onions, garlic, and bell peppers in a couple tablespoons canola oil until crisp tender; transfer to a slow cooker or crockpot.
Add the beef to the same skillet and brown, stirring to break up. As soon as meat is browned, drain well then add to the cooker. Add the beans, tomatoes, green chilies, oregano, cumin cayenne, pepper, salt, and broth; stir to mix well. Cover and cook on low setting 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours.
To serve, ladle chili into serving bowls and garnish with the sour cream, cheese, and green onions as desired.
