Well, it's a cold, windy day today, so I decided on chili.

2-Alarm Chili pack (I used real garlic instead of the dried garlic they provided)
1 pack of stew meat
1 pack of ground beef
2 large cans of tomatoes
1 can of dark red kidney beans (optional for those who subscribe to the no beans in chili mindset)
Beef Broth or Bullion to taste (depending on what you got)

Brown your meat, drain it, dump it and the rest of the ingredients into a crock pot. Cook on high until it gets to a boil, then turn it down low until dinner. With this method, you don't need additional thickeners.

Optional sides:
