slow cooker chili

 it was a rainy labour day...
there is something about a rainy day in september that had me itching to use the crockpot
so i prepped many of the meals for the week
and gathered the ingredients for my simple, bub and hub tested, crockpot chili

this is good for at least 10 adult servings and 4 cups worth blended down so both boys will eat it.


1lb ground beef - lean or ground chicken (i brown this in the slow cooker on high for 45min before adding the rest of the ingredients

then add...

1c chicken broth or water
2 chopped onions - medium
2c corn - frozen or can (if can drain and rinse well
1 can diced or crushed tomatoes with juice in
3cans of beans drained and rinsed well (i used 2 can white 1 can red kidney beans
2/3 jar of pasta sauce (my cheater secret ingredient - i used catelli garden select harvest mushroom but usually use classico or pc
2tbsp cumin
2tbsp minced garlic
4 tbsp chopped cilantro toward the end (optional - if you don't like, it doesn't need it

1/2c chopped jalapeno (optional - i didn't add as the bubs were both eating it to so added heat after
3hrs on high
serve over rice
...and i blended a few cups worth for the boys and served over rice for them too
