Coke Chili

Superbowl Sunday means chili day.  I never make it the same way so it's always a surprise how it will turn out - just like the game.  I had made this recipe using Dr Pepper before and decided to try using it with Coke which is always on hand.

Coke 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 regular Coke, 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.
