Deacons made a venison chili, there was turkey chili, and the other two were vegetarian. Church members gave a small donation to rate each entry on taste, appearance, and consistency. We had to wait until today to get the results. after all of the score sheets were tallied, my entry came out with 1st place. I could hardly believe it when the organizer announced that I had won.
Of course my brother said that I should give the prize back since I really did not work that hard to make it. I tried to explain to him that is was about taste and not the amount of time it took to make. This recipe is representative of the type of cooking that I generally do--quick and easy.
I never make this chili the same way twice. Here is the way I made it for the Chili Cook-off:
1 can navy beans, rinsed
1 can blacked beans, rinsed
1 can kidney beans, rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes
2 jars salsa (medium)
1 bag veggie crumbles
2 cups chopped onions and peppers (estimated amount)
1 packet of chili seasoning (medium)
Dump all ingredients into pot or slow cooker. Stir and heat until heated through.
This recipe can easily be adjusted to your individual or family taste.
