Chili, Just One Option

Chili Poweder

Chili recipes, there are a ton of them out there. With meat, without, beans or no beans. There is beef chili and even rattlesnake chili. So I just picked out one to post.


It takes 6 to 8 hours in the crock pot and this one will make about 5 servings.

If you sauté your vegetables, meat, and spices before putting them into the crock pot it will increase the fullness of flavor. After it has cooked the 6 to 8 hours, give it a kick with some fresh jalapeños. Serve it with cornbread. I have always been partial to the gritty and cheap Jiffy plain cornbread.

For the chili:

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 medium yellow onions, medium dice
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, medium dice
  • 6 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more as needed
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (14-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh jalapeños 

For serving:

    • Shredded cheddar cheese
    • Thinly sliced scallions
    • Sour cream
    • Corn Bread
