My Favorite Chili....Perfect for Superbowl

At this very moment my home is wafting of delicious smells from a large pot of chili simmering on the stove.
It is my favorite recipe {from my Auntie} and perfect for Super Bowl!
It is even better the second day.
I know I have posted about it before, but I thought it was worth sharing again.
Hope you enjoy :)!


Aunt Barbara's Famous Chili
1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-16oz. can diced tomatoes
1-16oz. can dark red kidney beans, drained
1-8oz. can tomato sauce
2-3 TBS. chili powder {to taste}
1/2 tsp. crushed basil
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
dash paprika
dash cayenne pepper

In a large pot, cook ground beef, onion, celery, green pepper until meat is brown. Drain fat.
Stir in undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder, basil, salt, pepper, bay leaf, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
Bring to boiling. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 2 hours, occasionally adding water as needed. Add kidney beans about 30 minutes before serving.

OR...
cook beef, put everything in the crockpot, and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
It is a great leftover and even better the second day!

Do you have any trouble with your Lodge dutch staining? I have one just like yours in the photo and it stained the first time i used it, i think i made something with tomatoes and i'm pretty sure it will never be white again. I'd like to get another one but bc of that i'm not sure if i should go with Lodge or another brand.
