When I put together a recipe I am not big on measuring things. I just eyeball a tablespoon or teaspoon. After you have been cooking for so many years you can get very good at it. Since I have been trying to share my recipes on this blog I have to make sure I can give you an exact measurement. My daughter will be happy because I usually tell her a pinch of this or a handful of that. She needs precise measurements. So Jen here you go and happy slow cooking.
This is an uncomplicated chili recipe, most items you should have on hand.

3 cans diced tomatoes ( 2 chili flavored 1 with green chilies)
1 package/can black beans
1 package/can kidney beans (I like to mix it up on the beans but any will do)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
brown beef and sausage with diced onion
drain fat and place in slow cooker
