Is it cold where you are? We are supposed to get snow this week, so I pulled out my crockpot and made this delicious crockpot chili recipe that I am going to share with you!
The first thing I did was brown my ground meat. I used a pound each of ground beef and ground chicken. I also diced an onion to sauté along with my meat.
Chili quickly comes together, especially if you use canned foods. What I like to add to my basic chili recipe is : kidney beans, chili beans, diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Sometimes I’ll add in some garbanzo beans, too. I didn’t have any today. Pretty much any bean will work in a chili.
The juices from the beans and tomatoes should give you enough liquid for your chili, but if you’d like more, just add more water to your pot. After I add my canned foods, I add my spices : chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder (we love onions), hot pepper flakes, cumin, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper. My brother in law swears by grape jelly and mustard in his chili as well, but I’ve not ever tried it. Do you have a secret ingredient in your chili? Once you’ve added all your ingredients, simmer your chili for one hour on medium heat. Enjoy!
What else goes well with a winter day?? Cocoa!!
The toppings are almost as important as the chili itself. Greek yogurt, shredded cheddar cheese and crackers are what we had for this meal. Cornbread is another good accompaniment to a deliciously warm chili. How do you take your chili?
