Red Hot Crockpot Chili
======================
1 lb. bacon, cut up in small chunks
4 lbs. ground beef
4 (1 lb) cans kidney beans
28 ounces canned crushed tomatoes
12 ounces tomato paste
2 onions, finely chopped
4 ounces chili powder
4 ounces cayenne pepper (dry powder)
2 cans beef broth
2 fresh tomatoes
2 jalapeno peppers or serrano peppers, fresh
3 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon oregano
1 1/2 tablespoons paprika

Fry the bacon until it starts to brown, then put it into the
crockpot. In the bacon drippings, brown the ground beef. Put the
ground beef, beans, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, onions, chili
powder, and the cayenne into the crockpot with the beef broth.
Cut the stems off the fresh peppers and cut them in two or three
chunks. Place the peppers along with the garlic and whole fresh
tomatoes into a food processor and puree the three ingredients.
Put this into the crockpot, stir to mix and let it all cook for
10-12 hours on low or 5-6 hours on high.
