Red, White & Habanero Chili

I've made many attempts at chili over the years. I'm from Texas so I feel obligated to produce good chili.

This chili has beans so the purists will come after me. But, this turned out to be my favorite attempt so far. I don't think it is hot despite the peppers.

I've never made chili in a crock pot before. I saw the idea for the bean puree and wanted to try it out with this recipe.

It won at our local company chili cookoff this year!

3Combine tomatoes, chopped peppers, tomato sauce, one can of kidney beans, one can of white (or black) beans and 1 tablespoon of seasoning mix in a large Crock Pot.
4Take the other can of beans, put in a blender and puree.
5Add puree and meat to the crock pot.
6Stir together.

8YOU WON’T USE ALL THE SEASONING MIX. THERE IS MAYBE ENOUGH FOR ANOTHER BATCH SO KEEP IN A BAGGIE OR SOMETHING.
