I’m not making it up. I pulled out the Rival Crock-Pot Cooking old cookbook that I think we had when we got our first crock pot while I was growing up. COpyright date is 1975. Older than me. Maybe my folks got it when they got married that same year? Anyway, still have it. Still bringing good recipes. I made some changes to this recipe as I was going along, and I would still make it spicier. But, it was good. Yummy dinner to come home to on a cold day.
3 strips bacon, chopped, cooked, and drained
1 large onion, chopped
3/4 lb groun chuck or beef (angus 90/10 was on sale this week, so I got that)
6 oz of cajun smoked sausage (love!)
1 green pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cans italian-style diced tomatoes
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can chili beans, medium sauce
3/4 T worcestershire sauce
2 T chili powder
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp pepper
Cook bacon, drain. Cook onion and rest of meat, drain. Throw all in a crock pot and cook for 8-10 hours on low. I served mine with sour cream and red-fat wheat thins. Yum. Would also be good with cheese and angel hair as well.
