Midwinter Chili for the CrockPot

In the bleak midwinter, Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

1 can chili beans, spiced
1 can black beans
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1/4 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1/2 small white or yellow onion, diced
1 tablespoon chili powder
optional: 1/4 cup spinach
1 quart tomato soup from the freezer!
(okay, you can substitute canned tomato sauce and/or tomato paste along with a can of tomatoes)

Add ingredients to crockpot in that order. Let simmer 4-6 hours on high or 6-8 on low. One hour before serving, add 1 cup noodles, stir, and turn heat to high.

Serve with your favorite sides for a hearty midwinter meal!
I like grated cheese on the top. Husband likes crackers. Kids both add ketchup, and I don't object.
My favorite sides are fresh bread, cheese, or a side salad. Mmm.

Mmmm! Thanks for the reminder! I thawed ground beef for just this purpose, then forgot about it in the fridge.

Love the verse above!
