"Northern" Chili

 Add the diced tomatoes, 2 cans of tomato sauce,  1 can tomato paste, then add in your browned meat, and your sauted onion and green pepper... finally add in the corn, salt and pepper and chili powder to taste....

Northern Chili

My friends husband calls my chili "northern" chili because he says that here in Texas, Chili means beans and meat... of course, I add more ingredients than that!  So... here is MY version of chili..:)

1 1/2 lbs of browned ground beef
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
1 can sweet corn
1 can kidney beans
1 green pepper, chopped
1 chopped onion
Chili powder, salt and pepper to taste
Cheddar cheese to top

Brown the meat, add to pot, add tomatoes, sauce, paste, corn, beans.  Saute the onion and pepper, add to pot. Add in 3 tablespoons of chili powder and then more to taste.  Salt and pepper and let simmer for an hour... or you can do it in a slow cooker for 3-4 hours.  Top with cheddar cheese... mmmmm, hopefully you will like this Northern Chili from this Northern girl!
