Crock Pot Beer Chilli :)

You'll need:
  • Bag of dried kidney beans (or two cans rinsed)
  • two packs of powdered taco seasoning
  • 1 pound of any type of ground meat (beef, turkey, tofu, venison)
  • three fresh diced tomatoes (or two cans diced tomatoes)
  • 6 cups of fresh diced vegetables (anything goes) we like zucchini, bell peppers, yellow squash, chili peppers, onion, celery
  • one bottle of beer
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • grated cheddar cheese
Get the meat cooking in the crock pot while you start the beans (prepare those according to quick cook package directions, usually you rinse them, then bring to a boil in a covered sauce pan for a few minutes then shut off the heat and let them sit for an hour)  dice your veggies (I use whatever I have in the garden that day), and set aside. After your ground meat looks cooked through, and your beans, veggies, bottle of beer and the two packs of taco seasoning then stir and let simmer for about 3 hours. Serve topped with grated cheddar cheese :)
