Savory Slow Cooker Chili Recipe


1 lb. grass fed ground beef. Or substitute ground chicken or turkey.

25 ounce jar organic tomato sauce without added sugar. Choose one with extra veggies like peppers and onions.

4 ounce can green chiles

15 ounce can organic beans. Pinto, kidney, chili beans all work nicely.

Mexican seasoning without fillers and sugar


Here’s the secret to the secret: You can truly do this spur of the moment / even when your ground beef is frozen. Put the frozen beef in a slow cooker on low for an hour. Then stir to break it up. This step can work for you when you are getting ready for your day. Then come back and finish up in under 10 minutes.

Stir the thawed beef to break it up evenly.

Add the tomato sauce. Add a little water to the jar to get every last bit and create the desired consistency for your chili.

Add 2-4 ounces of green chiles.

Add Mexican seasoning. A teaspoon might be enough. You might want more. Gauge it by your taste and how you make tacos. When in doubt, add less. You can always add more seasoning to the finished dish.

Rinse the beans in a colander and add to the chili mixture.

Stir well to incorporate everything.

Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours until simmering and cooked through.

Wala! You walk in your kitchen after a big day to the tantalizing smell of beef and veggie chili filling your home. Your taste buds come alive! You feel welcomed home!

Load your chili bowl to your delight with avocado cubes, grated cheese, a dollop of sour cream and salsa to make it your own. Delicious served on a baked sweet potato.
