Homemade Chili

I think the easiest way to make chili is in a slow cooker. I found this recipe a long time ago, and honestly do not know what cookbook it is from. It is easy and delicious though!

Serves 4 to 6

 1 lb of ground beef (can also use turkey)
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp ground oregano
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 15 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup tomato pureee
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes, with juice
Sketch the milk from the picture, I excluded it in the end.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat until hot. add diced onion, garlic, and tomato paste. Cook until onion browns.
 Add in ground beef and tomato puree. Cook until the meat is browned and no longer pink.
 This is what your meat should look like before adding to the slow cooker.
 In the slow cooker, add the kidney beans, diced tomatoes with juice, brown sugar, oregano, soy sauce, and cooked ground beef mixture. Stir together.
Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. Serve with saltine crackers.

From one newbie to another, enjoy!
