Marlene Muckenhirn's chili is big on fresh tomato taste. Says the Delano, Minnesota cook, "This recipe works well in a slow cooker."


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 6 medium tomatoes, cubed
  • 2 medium green peppers, chopped
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


  1. In a 5-qt. Dutch oven, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the tomatoes, green peppers, onions and garlic. Cook over medium-low heat for 20-30 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
