This was a recipe that I first discovered when I was looking for something original to serve after my daughter's baptism. Getting baked potatoes ready for 40 people was a little time consuming, but this recipe was quick to put together the night before and throw into the crockpot in the morning!
Potato Bar Chili
(recipe found in Taste of Home)
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 medium onions, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (15 1/2 ounces) chili beans, undrained
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a dutch oven, cook the beef, onions and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomatoes, beans, sugar and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Serve over potatoes.
