three bean chili

chili instantly reminds me of fall and it's always one of the first things i make when fall-like weather strikes.
the best part is this can be made in the crock pot, made ahead, and leftovers freeze beautifully.
you need:
1 lb ground beef, cooked
2 large red bell peppers, chopped
2 small onions, chopped
1 can dark red kidney beans
1 can light kidney beans
1 can canellini beans
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 large can tomato puree
4 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground mustard
(if you want yours spicy, add 1 tsp cayenne & 1 tsp red pepper flakes)
cheese, hot sauce, greek yogurt & green onions for garnish
combine every except garnish in the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours.  you can also make this on the stove top.  just combine all ingredients and simmer until heated through and onions/peppers are tender.  the longer this cooks, the more amazing it tastes!
