The World's Easiest Chili Recipe

This is a great recipe for nights when everyone is eating dinner at different times or for an open house party. Just leave the crock pot on and people can help themselves when they are hungry. I serve this with carrot sticks, crackers, shredded cheese, and tortilla chips.


  • 6 cans of any combination of these beans - red kidney, black, butter, pinto
  • 2 cans of mild chili beans in sauce (can you hot or medium if you prefer)
  • 1 lb of mild Italian ground sausage (can use hot if you prefer)
  • 1 lb of ground chuck
  • 1 large can (or two regular cans) of tomato sauce
  • 1 can of chili ready chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can of tomatoes with chili peppers
  • 2 small cans of V-8
  • Chili pepper to taste (I use about a half a cup)
  • garlic, garlic powder or garlic salt to taste

1) Brown the sausage and hamburger and drain.

2) Open up all the cans and dump contents into a crock pot

3) Add chili powder and garlic powder

Cook on low in crock pot for 5-10 hours.

You got my attention with the word: Chili. I am nuts for chili. The hotter the better.

This is an excellent piece of writing. To be totally-honest, it can easily be described as amazing.

I loved every word. Graphics were superb. This hub was helpful, informative and I found it very interesting.

Voted up and all the choices because you deserve it.

You have such a gift for writing. Keep writing no matter what.
