Heartwarming Chili

Mac's mama's recipe... We made this to go on the hot dogs at the Wade's housewarming party, but it's great in a bowl with cheddar cheese and cornbread with it, too!


1 1/2 c. kidney beans (soaked overnight with pinto beans)
2 c. pinto beans
1 lg. onion, diced
1 lg. green pepper, diced
1 lb. ground beef
32 oz. ketchup (whole bottle)
(about 28 oz) lg. can whole peeled tomatoes
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. paprika
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
3 whole cloves
1 bay leaf (or 2 little ones)
1-2 T. chili powder

Drain the beans that have been soaked overnight and recover with water. Boil beans for a few minutes, drain again, then soak again while you brown the meat. Add all the ingredients to the beans pot and simmer!
