The {Best} Chili {Ever}

In my husband's words, "This is the best chili I can remember ever tasting!"
He decided the beans helped it taste so good. 

I like not measuring while I'm cooking, but I guess it doesn't help when I try sharing the recipe. 
2-3 cups of soaked beans
1 lb ground meat. {again, we used venison}
1 cup frozen corn
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 tsp each:
minced onion, garlic powder, chili powder, salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Mushrooms are optional. My husband loves them. I just pick mine out and add them to his bowl. 

Add all ingredients into slow cooker and cook on low for about 4 hours. 

Again, I'm never strict about those measurements. I just usually throw them in there. 
Yesterday I had my two-year-old helper. i just gave him an almost empty salt shaker and a spoon to stir. He was happy as a clam. 
Top with cheese if desired. 

Chili marked the beginning of BEAN WEEK. {Woo hoo!}
Tonight we're having hay stacks. Left over chili with nachos, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and whatever else sounds good. 
Our systems will definitely be cleaned out after this week!

We're attempting this bean week because beans are cheap and healthy. If this works out, I'd like to try this every month. Hopefully I can come up with more "bean" meals. I suppose that's what Pinterest is for!

Happy Beans!
