Easy-Peasy Hearty Chili

Let’s hear it for the easiest dinner (yet least photogenic hence no photo) ever: crockpot chili! Matt had quite a few things or moreso “mmMMM” sounds to say about my latest batch so I figured I should add it to the blog.

So let’s get right to it. Easy-peasy recipe below:

Ingredients:

  • 1 can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 can pinto beans, drained
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 package of ground turkey (or ground beef)
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis or jalepenos (or whatever “with BLANK” your heart desires!)
  • 10 oz tomato paste (1/3 of the large 32 oz can)
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 2 TBSP Kinders BBQ Rub (Matt threw this in when I wasn’t looking – great call!)
  • 2 TBSP Spicy Chili Powder (some sort of mix of chili powder and garlic and some other good stuff)
  • 1 TBSP onion powder
  • 1 TSP sugar
  • 1 TSP cumin
  • 1 few grinds of pepper

Toppings:

  • sour cream
  • cheddar cheese
  • avocado
  • cilantro
  • tortilla strips

Directions:

  1. Brown the ground turkey in a pan.
  2. Toss all of the ingredients in the crock pot.
  3. Give it a good stir.
  4. Put on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8.
  5. Serve with cornbread! Our fav is from Trader Joes – surprise surprise.
