Dr Pepper Chili

This was my Super Bowl chili.  First time trying using a "pop" in my chili but the flavors in Dr Pepper added a nice undertone to it.  Plus, it's one of those easy recipes that you just throw all the ingredients into the crock pot and set the temperature to eat at whatever time you decide to.  

Dr Pepper Chili

1 - 15 oz can Light Red Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained
1 - 19 oz can Cannellini White Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained
1 - 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes

1 cup Dr Pepper, more if you want your chili juicier
1 pound extra lean ground beef, cooked

1/2 red pepper, diced
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, I used around 2 tbsp
1 tsp oregano

In your dutch oven or a large skillet, brown ground beef with onions, red peppers 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.
