Chili Con Carne with Beans (a slow cooker recipe)

We had a Christmas get-together and so I decided to make some slow-cooker chili. I usually follow a recipe but this time I decided to just wing it from my past chili experiences. This turned out really good and everyone loved it is so easy to make :)

Serving size: 10 people

2 tbsp olive oil
2 fresh jalapenos, seeds removed; chopped
1 green chile pepper, seeds removed; chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 medium yellow onions, chopped
2 lbs ground turkey or beef
1 tbsp each of garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce and chili powder
2-3 pounds stew meat, cut into 1 inch squares
2 16 oz cans of diced tomatoes with jalapenos, not drained
1 16 oz can whole tomatoes
1 16 oz can of corn, drained
1 16 oz can of white beans, drained and rinsed
1 16 oz can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 bottle of A1 Steak Sauce
1 10 oz can of tomato sauce
1 8 oz can of tomato paste

Grated cheddar cheese, chopped green onion, and sour cream

1. Heat up oil in a large saute pan to medium heat, add the jalapenos, onions, pepper, and garlic. Saute for 5 minutes. Add the turkey meat and all the seasonings: garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce and chili powder. Cook for another 5-10 minutes until the meat is brown throughout.
2. Add meat and veggie mixture to slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients to the slow cooker: stew meat, diced tomatoes with jalapenos, whole tomatoes, corn, white beans, kidney beans, Steak Sauce, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Stir ingredients to evenly spread all ingredients throughout.
3. Cook on HIGH for 6 hours. Serve with toppings and enjoy!
