This chili has replaced my old version I have made for years. Very easy; was able to prep everything the night before and then throw it all in the Crock Pot the next morning before work. I did add a little whole cumin and chili powder. Also, just because we love them, replaced two of the cans of beans for black beans. Replaced the diced tomatoes for a 32oz can of whole Roma tomatoes in a purée, because that is what I had in the pantry.
We made this our official meal on Halloween night since I found the recipe in 2002. While we are out trick-or-treating, the chili cooks in the slow-cooker and is ready with a hot meal when we come back home. My family LOVES this chili!
Love this! Made a batch and brought it to work to share, everyone raved about how delicious it was.. I passed out the recipe 5 times! Will make this again for sure! I did use different types of beans instead of all kidney and used turkey instead of beef.
My husband and I *loved* this chili! It's the only chili recipe I make now. We steam rice and mix the chili, rice, shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream and make an entire meal out of it.
only chili i make now!!!
