Of all the foods I like to eat, a good chili is right at the top of the list for so many occasions. Game day cookouts, staying in on cold nights, scaring the cat with mysterious sounds... You know... fun stuff! The best part about it is that it really is easy to make, and it doesn't require a whole lot of culinary skill. All you need is a crock pot and a whole bunch of time.
Crock pots are awesome. Just throw all the stuff in there, turn it on, make up a story about how hard you had to work on the meal, and come back way later. Ta-Da! You've successfully made some chili. It really is that simple when you have one. So go get one! They're cheeeeeap! We'll be waiting right here when you get back.

Ok! now that you're back, we can get down to business!
This recipe will give you enough chili to fill up a crock pot. Here's what we need:
12 oz Joe's Phenomenal Tangy Sundried Tomato Vinaigrette
28 oz Diced Tomatoes
12 oz Tomato paste
30 oz Canned black beans
1 1/2 lbs Ground Turkey
2 links Spicy Italian sausages (Sliced)
1 Yellow onion (medium sized, diced)
1 Cup Sweet peppers (sliced)
2 Cups Celery (sliced)
1 Cup Baby Bella mushrooms (quartered)
3 tbsp Minced garlic
1 tbsp Black pepper
1/2 tbsp Oregano
1/2 tbsp Thyme
1/2 tbsp Parsley
1 tbsp Stevia powder
1/2 tsp Chili oil
First things first... go ahead and turn on the crock pot. All you need to do is set it on low. Those thing cook super slow, and it's really easy to forget to turn them on, so just get that out of the way. Don't worry. You won't burn nothin'.
Basically, you're just gonna go ahead and throw all you ingredients in there. I like to prep all the stuff before I start to make it easier, but it's not really necessary. You can do that as you go if you prefer. The first thing in the cooker should be the turkey meat and sliced italian sausage. Then you add the tomatoes, tomato paste, and Tangy tomato dressing. stir it a little to get the paste to break up.
Next, start adding the rest of the ingredients one by one, stirring just a little bit between each, just to mix everything up a little. Once you have everything in there, just throw on the lid and let it cook. In a crock pot, this will take around 5 or 6 hours to really cook and thicken up. I like to come by once in a while and give it a little stir here and there, but other than that, you're golden! Easy-Peazey! Rich, Delcious, Amazing chili.... Hope you love it!
