Week 1: Crockpot Chili

1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 large can diced green chilies
1 can black beans, drained
1 can pinto beans, drained
1 can chili beans in sauce, undrained
1 can stewed tomatoes
2 cans tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
2 tea tabasco sauce, plus more to taste
2 tea chili powder
2 tea cumin

Saute onion, beef, green chilis first.  Drain.  Add all ingredients to crockpot.  Cook 2-5 hours on low.  Serve with sour cream, cheese, green onions, fritos, oyster crackers....whatever you wish!

This recipe was given to me about 10 years ago (oh boy, has it been that long Erin!?!?) .  I have been adding and adjusting since.  I think I have perfected it- for my taste anyways!


  1. I never thought I would find a chili that I liked as well as I did cincinnati chili.... but I have. This chili is a winner. Nicely done!!

  2. A great addition to this recipe- try the "Zippy Cornbread" on Robin's link above!!!

  3. Made this tonight:) It was a hit, Great flavor! Had to adapt it to things I had on my shelf. I used Rotel tomatoes and fire-roasted diced, and did not have chili beans in sauce and just skipped that ingredient. I'll be making it again! I'll buy all the ingredients for your version and mine!
