What’s Better on a Chilly Day than Chili?

ChiliOkay, so I can’t exactly say it was chilly in Tucson today. In fact I think it was a crisp 81* today 🙂 However, nothing says fall like pumpkin carving and a nice bowl of chili afterwards. The big kids love my chili, and the little guy will learn to appreciate this hearty meal in a bowl. The best part about this meal is it’s easy and there is usually a ton leftover.  Sometimes I freeze it for another night and other times we use over baked potatoes or make chili dogs.
Here’s my recipe:
2 lbs of ground beef ( I use 80/20)
3 cans chili beans-do not drain (I use S&W Chili beans)
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can white beans (drained and rinsed)
1 small can diced green chile’s
1 large can whole tomatoes (break up tomatoes into mixture, include extra sauce from can into mixture)
salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, chili powder to taste

Brown ground beef, drain and place in slow cooker
Add beans, seasonings, and chile’s
Cook in slow cooker for 4-6 hours
Serve with shredded cheese and cornbread

  1. That might be on the menu here tomorrow, slightly different verizon. Kyle & Kevin will eat it, Julia will pick out the beans and eat the rest, Erik won’t touch it at all. It’s going to be cold and rainy.


      1. Well as I predicted Kyle and Kevin ate, Julia picked out the beans and Erik didn’t touch it, he doesn’t eat ground meat except in the form of meatballs so not to suprising there.

  2. Leanne- I’m glad two out of four liked it! We even got the little guy to eat a huge bowl of it 🙂

    Redneck-you can add more spice and chili powder to spice it up, I have to keep it mild for the kids.

    Wyattt- haha! I’m not even going to go there!
