Crock Pot Wednesday

I've been invited to participate in this. Although I do one on Thursday's it should not be a problem. I use my crockpot all the time! Many people think that just because I'm a stay at home mom I have all the time in the world to make supper. Wrong!! I wear many hats one being homeschooling mom. That takes up a lot of time. I'm sure people have many chili recipes but this one is a great go to recipe that is easy.

Simple Chili

2 pounds ground beef browned and drained
1 large onion chopped
1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes, with liquid
2 cans (8 oz each) tomato puree
2 cans (16 oz each)with liquid use less depending on how your family likes it
1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies with liquid (optional)
1 cup water
1 teaspoon garlic minced
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons salt (I usually leave this out because of using canned products)
1 teaspoon pepper

Mix all ingredients in slow cooker. Cover and cook on high 2-3 hours or on low 4-6 hours.

Wow, I make my chili almost exactly like yours! I also love crock pot cooking, which works great for me with homeschooling and working at home.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments!
