Chili – In the Crock Pot

I was feeling lazy this week, (while fighting yet another cold this winter), so I decided to make them an easy dinner…. something I just had to scoop and serve when dinner time rolled around.



Here is what I used to make it.


I browned the ground beef in the microwave until it was fully cooked and the juices ran clear… then drained it.

I opened the tomatoes, kidney beans and brown beans and poured them all into the crock pot with the spices.


And mixed it all together.


I added the cooked ground beef and stirred until it was evenly distributed.

And then I cooked it on low heat for about 5 hours.


I scooped it into the bowls, added a dollop of sour cream and grated cheese to the top and they had a nice hot, comfort food dinner ready with minimal effort from me!
