At home on Sunday, I started the chili. As stated I still had plenty of ingredients at home, so I browned the beef in my rather vintage looking West Bend two piece crock pot (I love this piece, which I picked up at Goodwill years ago for about $5.00). I then added a small can of green chiles, two cans of tomatoes with jalapenos, one can black beans, one can black beans with jalapenos and two cans of diced tomatoes. My crock pot was filled to the brim and it started smelling really, really good. About 4 hours later, everything was heated through and chili was on the menu. Adding some cheese, sour cream and crumbled crackers made for a nice dish and the chili was finally spicy enough to please everyone. Adding the jalapenos in the tomatoes and beans made all the difference and despite having a relatively small amount of beef, this chili was tasty and filling.
