Chili is one of those recipes that can get pretty darn fancy, considering it came about as hearty cowboy fare. I've seen recipes that look truly delicious but who has the time or energy to prep such an elaborate bowl of chili? Well, some people do, but I certainly don't. I like to keep it simple, and keep it cheap. So here's my version of an uber quick, but totally yummy, bowl of chili.
Dice some garlic and an onion.
Throw these into a large skillet with some ground beef. Mmm, raw beef... aren't you hungry already?
While the ground beef is browning, throw a can of diced tomatoes into your crock pot.
Add a can of chili beans.
And a 30 oz. can of tomato sauce.
When your meat is browned, add it to the crock pot too.
Toss your seasonings in. Do it to taste, or measure it. Most likely, you won't screw it up, and you can taste it later to decide if you need more.
Stir it up, and let it cook in your crock pot for 8-10 hours on low.
Enjoy your chili! We like to top ours with sour cream, cheddar, and Frito chips. It's kid-friendly and super easy. My favorite kind of meal!
