Not Crazy Nana Chili

Chili is a great crock pot dish for those gloomy days. We had a small run of nice Spring days and then the letdown of it getting cool again. The daffodils were looking so good and now their little heads are drooping. I think my go-to batch of chili just may be the ticket.

Ingredients

This chili is quick to put together. It is just a bit of browning, a little chopping, and some can dumping.

Ingredients needed:

2 pounds of ground beef, browned

1 onion, rough chopped

1 green pepper, large diced

3 or 4 garlic cloves, diced small

4 ounce can of green chilies

28 ounce can diced tomatoes

10.75 ounce can of tomato puree

16 ounce can of red kidney beans

Water

3 – 5 heaping tablespoons of chili powder

Dash of cayenne (optional)

Directions

When I brown the hamburger, I don’t bother to rinse and drain it. Do this according to your preference but I like the flavor of having a bit of the fat. I usually buy 85 to 90 percent lean. Once browned, add it to the bottom of the crock pot.

Add all the canned ingredients to the crock pot. Fill the tomato puree can halfway with water and add that amount to the crock pot.

Then comes the heat. I measure chili powder in heaping tablespoons.

  • Mild: If you want it really mild but still flavored, add 3 heaping tablespoons.
  • Medium: If you want it a medium chili, then add 4 heaping tablespoons and just a little dash of cayenne, by dash you are looking to just add a pinch.
  • Hot: You can decide if you want more the chili heat or cayenne heat. You may go up to 5 tablespoons of chili powder or a bit more cayenne. The cayenne can get it really hot quickly, be careful.

Stir everything in the crock pot together. Set the temperature to low and cook for 8 hours. 

Give the chili a good stir at the end of the day and enjoy!

Time to Eat

Chili is so nice on a gloomy, cool day and it can feed a lot of people at once or us throughout the week.
