EASY SLOW COOKER CHILI
Growing up, we had chili quite a bit in the fall and winter months. It is one of those things that you usually have ingredients for in your pantry and if you don’t have the ingredients, you improvise. I love that you can basically put anything into chili and it tastes good. My grandpa always made his with noodles. I always thought of it as spaghetti, but it wasn’t. There were just enough noodles to make an impact, but not enough to call it spaghetti. My mom and step dad put potatoes in their chili. That makes it very hearty and makes it more stew-like.
I have eaten all these chilis multiple times and they are all good. But mine is the best (duh!) I like this easy slow cooker chili because there are simple ingredients, it takes no time to throw together and you can let it cook all day and when you come home, dinner is ready. I also like how it’s inexpensive to make. It’s mostly just cans of things that you can usually stock up on at the store.
How to make this chili
You can make this chili meatless for meatless Monday! Just add one more can of beans of your choice and voila! I usually add another can of black beans because those are our favorite.
Ground turkey also goes well in this chili. You can sub that in for the ground beef.
This chili works well on the stove too. Just cook the meat, throw in the rest of the ingredients and let it all simmer 30-45 minutes.
You can always add more seasonings you like. I sometimes add chili flakes for more spice or some smoked paprika for a little smokiness. It’s all your preference. You can’t really mess this up!
We like to eat our chili with shredded cheese and sour cream. My husband also likes oyster crackers in this. You could serve with avocado or limes too! You do you!
Stay warm friends!
