Crockpot Chili for Cowards - Mild Chili Recipe, Good for Kids
Chili - So Easy, So Good
There's nothing better than coming home to a pot of chili after a long, cold day. Here's a great crockpot recipe anyone can follow. Even if you are scared of your stove, give this a try. It's chili for cowards. You can do it.
This chili is meaty, mild and rich. It's a coward's dream come true!
- 3 pounds Ground Beef
- 1 Onion, Minced
- 4 cloves Garlic, Crushed
- 2 14 oz. cans Fine Diced Tomatoes
- 15 oz. can Tomato Sauce
- 2 15 oz. cans Red Beans or Kidney Beans, Undrained
- 2 Tbsp. Chili Powder
- 2 tsp. Ground Cumin
- 1 tsp. Dried Oregano
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1 to 2 tsp. Corn Starch, if needed
Brown the Meat.
In a large pan, brown the ground beef, onion and garlic. Drain the meat.
Dump It All In.
Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, beans, water and seasonings. Stir until mixed.
Make the Switch.
Transfer the chili from the pot into the crockpot.
Now, We Wait.
How long? I would recommend 6 to 8 hours. The longer it cooks, the better it tastes.
When you are ready to eat the chili, if it's too runny for your preferences, you can thicken it up with a little corn starch. Stir 1 to 2 tablespoons of corn starch into about 4 ounces of COLD water. Then, pour the mixture into the chili and allow it to cook for a few more minutes.
Time to Eat!
You can serve your chili with pasta, crackers, cheese, sour cream or whatever suits your fancy. No one will complain, because their mouths will be too full of warm, rich, delicious chili.
See! That wasn't scary, was it?
