Calico Chili

The fall leaves come in a variety of colors and your nice, warming bowl of chili should also.  I used three types of beans in this easy to make chili.  I made it in my dutch oven but you and also put it in the crock pot for a game day meal.  






Calico Chili

1 - 15 oz can Light Red Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained
1- 15 oz can Black Beans, rinsed and drained
1 - 15 oz can Cannellini White Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained
1 - 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 - 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 pound extra lean ground beef, cooked
1/2 small onion, minced 
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup ketchup
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
chili powder to taste
1 tsp oregano

In your dutch oven or a large skillet, brown ground beef with onions and garlic. Add all the remaining ingredients to the dutch oven or  crock pot.  Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes or longer in the crock pot.
