Crock-Pot Chili

This week is a busy week. Busy as in... regular lessons, plus a day of make-up lessons; parent teacher conferences; Audrey is playing keyboard for jr. high worship team (180); Bill is installing cabinets and is gone; haircut; basketball practice and games; spa night with Audrey; helping lead songs for D6 kindergarten class; helping Jessica decorate her house; joining up with my regular Bible study again; oh, and we need to eat... I need my crockpot on these kinds of weeks. Here's a tried and true recipe from a friend who gave the recipe and my crock-pot to me when we were both newly married. Thanks, Laura.

Crock Pot Chili
1 can chili beans
2 14.5 oz. cans chopped tomatoes
1 lb. Ground beef, browned and drained
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. cumin
½ bottle chili sauce

Put in crock pot in order listed. Stir once. Cook 5-6 hours on high, or 10-12 hours on low.

This is a good basic chili that you can heat up by using hot chili beans, Ro-tel tomatoes, hot chili powder, if you want. We like it the way it is because Ben says it doesn't "spice his mouth". We eat it with shredded cheddar cheese and frito chips.

Now I gotta go. I'm busy giving my best energies and affections to that list on top and more!


  1. I'm glad you like it, even after 15 years!

  2. Oh my gosh, Laura! I can't believe you are reading my blog! And how are you? Still lovin' your chili and beef au jus in the SAME crock-pot!
