It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Well, maybe somewhere in this world, but not here in Tennessee.  We were in the 70's yesterday!  Today it is gray and dreary. But, I don't mind it, really. So it's time for a little Christmas cooking.  Sharing a recipe for the crock pot today.  You can let this cook while you are making your Christmas cookies, candies and cakes!  I've had this recipe a long time and not sure where I found it but it sounds a little like a Gooseberry Patch recipe.  Their cookbooks are my favorites.  So join me today and let's make our homes smell like wonderful and yummy Christmas favorites!

Slow Cooker Christmas Chili

1 lb lean ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1 lb mild country sausage
1 onion, chopped
2, 15 oz cans diced tomatoes (seasoned for chili ones work nicely)
1, 8 oz can tomato sauce
2 tsp ground cumin
3 TBSP chili powder
1, 15 oz cans white beans, undrained
1, 15 oz cans pinto beans, undrained
sour cream
shredded cheddar cheese
sliced green onions

Cook ground beef, sausage and onion, breaking up the meat. Drain. Place into a slow cooker with all remaining ingredients except sour cream, cheese, and green onions. Cover and cook on low heat for 8 to 10 hours. Serve hot with sour cream, cheese, and green onions.
