What’s Cookin’ Wednesday: Laurel’s Most Famous Chili

Mickis Chili


This recipe was given to Micki's mother in law by and old Italian man who worked with her at the school district when her sons were little.

2-15 ounce cans pinto beans in chili sauce (I use the ranch beans with jalapenos and take the jalapenos out so the sauce is spicy)
1-15 ounce can whole peeled tomatoes or diced tomatoes
1-15 ounce can tomato sauce
1-6 ounce can tomato paste
1/4 T cumin powder
1 T chili powder
1 T salt
1 T pepper
1 T sugar
1/2 T garlic powder

Chop 1 large onion and brown with 1 pound hamburger. Drain off grease and mix with top ingredients. I throw it all in the crock pot and set on low for a few hours. That way it seasons well and the onions are soft (my husband doesn't like crunchy onions).

*Edited to add: Teri's family doesn't like it as spicy or salty, so she uses the chili beans in mild sauce and cuts the salt and pepper down to 1 tsp.
