Mouth-watering Wednesday--DeeDee's chili

This is my DeeDee and Grum.  They are my maternal grandparents and my kids' great grandparents.  They live 1150 miles away (give or take a few), and we miss them a lot.  DeeDee is an amazing lady.  She is also an amazing cook.  Anything and everything DeeDee makes is so good!  She is most well-known for her chocolate chip cookies of which she has made literally thousands and given away.  This is her chili recipe.  It is a sweet chili which is why I like it.  I don't like anything spicy, but there is chili powder in it, and if you want it more spicy, add more. 
DeeDee's Sweet Chili

1 lb ground beef
2 cans stewed tomatoes, don't drain, but blend up
2 cans red kidney beans with juice
1/3 cup ketchup
1/2-1 tes chili powder
1 small chopped onion
1 small chopped green pepper

Cook the ground beef with the onion and green pepper.  Drain if needed.  Put meat in crock pot with other ingredients and put on low for several hours.  You can also just cook this on the stove top and simmer a couple of hours.  Enjoy!


  1. I remember that DeeDee's chocolate chip cookies !!!
    They ware so nice, nice and soft. I had them in a plane going back to Japan. Please say hello to her, thank you :-D

  2. This sounds so good! Even better that it can go into the crock-pot. Thanks for sharing it. I love that you highlight a recipe each week. I seem to always get stuck in the same old cooking rut. It's so nice to get some new recipes.

  3. Mmm, gotta try this! I am quite familiar with Dee Dee's cookie recipe. It's in my book! I've made it many times. She knows her stuff!
