Beef and 2 Bean Chili ~ #chili #recipe #azebraslife

We are in Day 2 of the “snowstorm” here in the St. Louis area. I love making a big pot of chili on snow days. It doesn’t take too much effort, plus at the end of the day… you have a bunch of options to make with your chili. Chili Dogs, Chili Dip, Chili Mac, Frito Pie, or just a nice warm bowl of chili. I play around with my recipes, depending on what ingredients I have on hand. This time I went with a Beef & 2 Bean Chili. See below for more.

 

Super easy recipe. Cool the beef. Add all ingredients, except for the beans. And cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

Then add beans. Turn dial to HIGH and cook for 20 mins. Once the 20 minutes has passed, turn dial down to warm.

Chili tastes great with cornbread. The 20 minutes you’re waiting for the beans would be a good time to pop a pan of cornbread into the oven.

Slow Cooker Chili (Spicy)

Here is another Fall Favorite. Chili! I love Chili Season. You can make it so many different ways, but I like a more traditional chili. A lot of meat and veggies. And beans! I also like my chili to have a kick. So we make it spicy in our house. Cornbread is a great addition if a chili is too spicy for you.

My husband’s work is having a Chili Cook-off today and he really wanted to enter this year. So last night, I tossed everything in the slow cooker, turned it on LOW and went to bed. This morning, I turned it on HIGH, added the beans. And continued on with our morning. About 30 minutes later, I turned it to WARM until he was ready to head to work.

I have to say that waking up to the smell of chili was not a bad way to wake up.

Turn on HIGH Add beans… cook for 20-30 minutes.

Then turn to WARM until you’re ready…
