Honest to God, it does not get any easier than this. I am not one who loves to cook, and since practice makes perfect, my skills leave a lot to be desired. However, there are a few very simple dishes that I can make and occasionally I try a new one. This chili is always a hit and takes about 5 mins to throw together in a crock pot. My mom gave me the recipe, so don’t come at me if this is in a cookbook somewhere … although, I would honestly question that cookbook.
2lbs ground beef (or ground turkey – whatever you like), browned and drained
2 cans light kidney beans, undrained
1 can chili bean, undrained
64oz of salsa (or as I call it, the “vegetables”
I tend to use mild salsa if my kids are eating it, but you can adjust to your preferred taste. Also, no clue what happens if you use dark kidney beans by accident, but I doubt much.
- Throw browned meat, beans and salsa in crockpot
- Turn on crockpot
- Cook on low for 6 hours
I tend to garnish mine with sour cream and grated cheese. You can substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream if you are so inclined. My toddlers will eat these and ask for more, a win in my book! Toddlers are the worst critics.
If this is too difficult for you, I hope you are a millionaire and can UberEats every meal because it truly does NOT get easier than this! Enjoy
