Okay so it’s cold and snowy out and it’s the big game weekend so it’s a great day to make Chile.  If you make it today it will be better tomorrow .      Or make it tomorrow early and it will still be good.

Pretty simple,     you can throw all this into a    4- 5 qt crock pot  or in a stock pot that you will have to stir every time you get up to get a beer while you are laying around watching movies all day……. hey,   whatya   gonna do ?

1 – 2 lb. hamburger – browned

1 large onion – chopped and sautéed in hamburger grease

2 cans dark kidney beans – drained ,  rinsed

2 cans light kidney beans – drained rinsed

1 bottle beer – real bear not lite  – these days I’m liking Sammy Adams lager  to cook with ,  and Old Style is always good too
