Mimi's Slow Cooker Chili

Served in a puffed pastry bread bowl.

Mimi's Slow Cooker Chili

Part 1:
Combine in fry pan/

1 pound of lean ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1 packet of low sodium taco seasoning
1/4 cup water

Part 2:
Combine in crock pot/

1 pound of marinating steak, chopped into 1 inch pieces
1 jar of spaghetti/marnara sauce
1 540ml can of crushed tomatoes
1 pinch of sugar

Part 3:
1 teaspoon of chili powder*
1/2 teaspoon crushed red chili flakes*
2 shots of Tabasco*
1 can Chili Style Beans*
1 can BBQ Style Beans*

What I did:

  • Fry ground beef until little pink remains, drain any excess fat.
  • Return beef to pan, season with taco seasoning and water.
  • Add onions and fry for about 5 minutes.
  • Combine Part 1 & Part 2 in crock pot, stir well.
  • Cook on High for 3 hours or Low 6 hours.
  • Add Part 3 in the last hour of cooking.  {Why add the items in Part 3 last? It is possible to over cook spices and they may become bitter. And I like my beans to have texture, not be cooked to mush.}

Serve with:
Shredded Cheese
Lime wedges
Chopped Green Onion
Sour Cream
Diced Red Onion
Tortilla Chips
Baked Potato

Leftover Hints:

Chili Dogs
Serve cooked chili over your favourite hot dog.

Place tortilla or corn chips on a baking tray, spoon chili and shredded cheese over top. Bake until cheese is melted. Garnish with green and red onions, sour cream, jalapeno, olives, diced tomato.

Sloppy Joe's
Add 1 tablespoon of ketchup & 2 tablespoons of hamburger relish to 2 cups of leftover chili,
reheat and serve over buns or toast.
