Classic chili recipe
Chili-adapted from New Slow Cooker Recipes by Betty Crocker
Total Time: 8 hours
2 pounds ground beef (already cooked)
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
1 tablespoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 can (15 or 16 ounces) chili beans, kidney, or pinto beans, rinsed and drained
Shredded cheddar cheese, if desired
Sour cream, if desired
Mix beef and remaining ingredients except beans in 3 1/2-6 quart slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low heat 6-8 hours (or high heat 3-4) or until onion is tender.
Stir in beans. Cover and cook on high heat 15-20 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Substitute ground pork for the ground beef for richer flavor--I have not tried this but it was suggested along with the recipe!
