Pretty much no one. And if you don’t love chili, well . . . I am sorry. 🙂 Thankfully we have lots of other recipes on our site that you can check out!
With the holidays being such a crazy time of year, this meal is perfect. You basically dump it in and go about your day then when dinnertime rolls around, it’s ready when you are!
We have a couple of different recipes for chili, but this is my new favorite! I am a sucker for green chilis and this has a couple of different ingredients that make it amazing. Serve with cheese, sour cream, green onions, and a bag of Fritos corn chips (they are so good with chili- trust me!) and you are good to go!
PS I am not sure why this is called Texas Chili . . . the recipe comes from an old neighborhood cookbook that my mom has and I liked the name, so I stuck with it! I know that we have a lot of readers from Texas . . . maybe one of you know why they would call this Texas Chili?
Slow Cooker Texas Chili
1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, diced
2 green bell peppers, diced
1 (4 oz) can diced green chili peppers
1 (14 oz) can beef broth
1 (15 oz) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground pepper
dash red pepper flakes (optional- but it adds flavor, not heat)
In a large saucepan, brown ground beef and diced onion. Add to slow cooker. Dump remaining ingredients on top and cook on low for 4-6 hours (it really could go as long as 8 hours on low if you need it to). Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, green onions, and a bag of Fritos corn chips – or any of your other favorite toppings!
Serve with our Cheesy Garlic Texas Toast.
Makes 6-8 servings.
