Another of the family favorites...beef chili. This recipe is SUPER easy. Literally just throw everything in the crock pot and let it cook. The only prep is to cut up an onion and rinse some beans.
1.5 lbs ground beef
1 1/2 T ground cumin
2 T chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 garlic cloves
7 oz diced green chilies (I used canned)
1 medium onion chopped (use discretion, you don't want to be overwhelmed with onion)
1 15 oz can chili beans, undrained
1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
12 oz can tomato paste
Add everything to crock pot, mix, cook on low for about 5 hours. We typically end up leaving it on warm or simmer for a while after and it's fine.
To serve I usually put some diced red onion and shredded cheese on top and serve with some crusty bread.
This is a big recipe, makes 8-10 servings.
The chili freezes well. I like to freeze a couple of smaller portions to have later on as a topping for a baked/sweet potato.
