Easy Weeknight Chili (also works in the crockpot!)

Tonight I wanted to make this recipe, and went searching in the blog archives before realizing I've never posted it! Easy, comforting, warm, and delicious, this is the perfect traditional chili recipe that everyone needs in their repertoire. But as simple as it is, I always get asked for the recipe when I make it. Perfect for either the stovetop or the crockpot, this is the meal to add to your regular menu rotation as life starts to get busy heading into the holidays. 

Easy Weeknight Chili
adapted from

2 lbs. ground beef, cooked and drained
2 cans tomato sauce
2 cans kidney beans, undrained
2 cans pinto beans, undrained
1/2 of a medium onion, chopped
1 small can green chilis
1/4 cup diced celery
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 t. cumin
3 T. chili powder
1 1/2 t. pepper
2 t. salt
2 c. water

Combine all ingredients in large pot and simmer for at least an hour, stirring occasionally. This is also delicious in the crockpot - just set on high for a few hours, or low for the whole day.
