Happy Halloween

We have a tradition every Halloween, we make chili, it seems like a perfect time, with the cool weather it just taste so good. This year I made a rather large batch and intend on sharing with the parents of the little trick or treaters  and anyone brave enough to trudge through the rain to bring their little ones over. Hope to see ya'll. Have a Happy Halloween!!
Mom’s Old Fashion Chili

1 1/2 lb Pinto beans
32oz Can V8 – (store brand works fine)
1 qt. Stewed Tomatoes
1 pt salsa
1 1/2 lb hamburger
½ lb sausage
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 onion
1 bell pepper
Wash the pinto beans look for small rocks and dried pieces of mud. Put beans into a bowl and cover with water 1 –2 inches above the beans and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of baking soda – this will help with the “gas” problem. Soak the pinto beans all day and night. Pour off any excess water and rinse the beans. Put the beans in a pot cover with water – about an inch above the beans and place on medium/low heat when the water is looking like you need to add more – instead of adding water pour in the V8 and stewed tomatoes.   Chop the onion and green pepper and place in a separate pan with the burger and sausage cook till meat is browned and veggies are tender.  Drain any excess grease – Add to the beans and tomatoes – Add bottle of salsa (hot, medium, or mild whatever you like)– let simmer for a few hours -  season with Salt, Pepper and Chili powder
Tip: The chili powder you buy in the bag is much better and has better flavor that the kind you buy in the bottle.
