My Dad's Chili Recipe

I made this chili a while back and it was really, really yummy. It's my dad's recipe and it turns out very slightly acidic due to all the tomato products, but serving it with bread remedies that. You could also add a small can of beans or omit a little bit of the tomato product.

You will need the following things for this recipe:

- 2 Tbsp oil
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 3 cloves crushed garlic
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 1 Tbsp cumin
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 Tbsp chili powder
- 2 beef bouillon cubes
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp oregano
- ½ tsp crushed red pepper
- 28 oz crushed tomatoes
- 15 oz diced tomatoes
- 5.5 oz v8 or tomato juice
- 2 cups water
- 3 bay leaves
- 2 cups frozen corn
-1 chopped green pepper

Heat oil and sautée onions and garlic a few minutes. Add in the beef and brown.

Okay, this recipe is just ridiculously simple.

Transfer the beef mixture with a slotted spoon (or otherwise in a manner that drains the far and oil) to a slow cooker.

Add in all the rest of the ingredients.

Set slow cooker to whichever setting you prefer, depending on how far in the future you plan on eating this delicious concoction, and just wait. The beef is ground and bathing in three varieties of tomato, so it's not as though you need to worry about it getting dry.
