Chili Noodle Soup

I'm falling off the wagon here. This is another made up recipe. I've got plenty of excuses, but none that make me feel like a better person.

Anyway, I was originally planning on making chili, but I added way too much beef broth so I decided to soak up all that water by throwing in some pasta. I haven't tasted it but here is my recipe. There is so much, that it doesn't matter if it tastes good I'm just going to eat it anyway.

In a crock pot (because I didn't feel like doing much for dinner):

2lbs ground beef
1/2 small red onion
3 cloves garlic
1/2 green bell pepper
1 sm can dark red kidney beans
1 sm can light red kidney beans
1 lg can crushed tomatoes
1 sm box beef broth
3 handfuls of chili powder
2 handfuls of cumin
s & p
and a sprinkle of finely ground red pepper
1/2 box sm shell noodles (later)

cook on high for a bit then when you drop down to low add the noodles.

tada. Remember to serve with some yummy options like: cheddar cheese, oyster crackers or sour cream. These are Justin and my favorite chili toppings. (we usually don't use crackers when noodles are involved though) I also like fresh chopped onion & scallions. (They seem to make your breath smell much worse. --But you're eating chili, hello!)
