Chili Cookoff

This weekend, Connor and I participated in a Chili Cookoff. Unfortunately, we didn't win, but we sure had fun. The chili I made was super easy and really good! I thought I would share the recipe since it appears we may be getting some cooler chili kind of weather. Keep in mind this recipe made a full crockpot and served at least 20 people. You could half the ingredients for a smaller portion or freeze part of it to use later.
Connor's Big Boy Chili 
2 large onions, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped
3 minced garlic cloves
1 1/2 pounds of ground round
2 cans of Bush's chili beans
2 cans of red kidney beans
 1 12 oz. can of tomato paste
2 cans of Hunt's diced tomatoes with onion and bell peppers
1 cup water
1 packet of McCormick's Mild Chili Seasoning Mix
salt as needed
1/4 teaspoon of ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
Chopped green onions (optional)
Saute' onions, bell pepper, and garlic until tender. Add ground meat and cook until crumbled and no longer pink. Stir in water, undrained tomatoes, tomato paste and Chili beans. Drain the kidney beans and then add. Add McCormick's packet and the rest of the seasonings. Let simmer on low for 30 minutes. Serve with chopped green onions to garnish.
