Amy's Invite-Your-Friends-Over Crock Pot Chili

1 lb ground turkey
1 lb ground chuck
2 (10.75 ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 cans dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 cans light red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 cans diced tomatoes (I used the ones that said "ready for chili")
1/2 to 1 cup dried onion flakes (I didn't measure this but I probably used close to 1 cup)
1 can beef broth
4 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Brown turkey and hamburger meat. Drain if needed. Add to crockpot. Add all other ingredients and stir to combine. Cook 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Serve with sour cream and cheddar cheese.
You can cut this recipe in half easily but it freezes really well. I make the full recipe and freeze leftovers. Hey, cook once and save yourself the work, right? :)
