Crockpot chili

YUMMMM!!

My parents were coming because we were going to go on a West Wing tour (it got canceled but rescheduled) I gave my dad the option of poppy seed chicken or chili and yay he picked chili.

This was so easy. I tossed it together Friday night – and got up Sat and put it in the crockpot and forgot about it.

By some standards I cheated – I used the McCormick chili seasoning packet. I just needed quick , easy and cheap.

Ingredients:

2 lbs of beef ( I actually used 2.5 lbs)

1 Package of McCormick chili seasoning

2 cans (14 oz) Diced tomatoes ( I used petite dice because I don’t like whole tomato chunks)

2 cans (16 oz) kidney beans, drained ( I used one of the large cans of Dark kidney beans)

1 can (15.5 oz) tomato sauce

Onion powder

Garlic powder

Directions:

Brown the meat and season with onion and garlic powder. Drain the meat and combine everything together in crockpot. I refrigerated over night and got up and put it on high for 3 hours, then I switched it to low for the next 2. If I was going to be cooking it all day I would have just put it on low for 8-10 hours.  Spoon into a bowl, and eat with toppings of choice.

This was super easy to make which is great because I had to clean the apartment- it was nice to set it and forget it. This was good for lunch on Monday and also on hotdogs for dinner the other night.

    Yummm…I actually made crock pot chili on Friday. Our recipes are very similiar except I add an onion chopped up and two green peppers chopped up. Sometimes I throw an extra hot pepper in there too, oh and I use black beans instead of kidney beans… yum, I love chili lol. I’ll have to make cornbread muffins next time; never thought of that

      I was totally going to use an onion – but I forgot to get one at the store, and I never made it back out. Either way it was good!!
