  • Tomato juice, chili powder, cayenne pepper, cumin, whole tomatoes, ground beef (or shredded roast beef is great too), garlic powder, onions, salt and pepper. Let simmer in a crock pot all day.

  • One of two ways. Best Chili Ever – you can use any bean; 1 can = 1/5 cups home cooked
    2 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
    4 cups vegetable broth
    1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 (15-ounce) can white (cannellini) beans, rinsed and drained
    1 (15-ounce) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • If you don’t have a slowcooker, this can simmer on the stove; stir and add liquid as needed. In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients but the masa, shredded cheese, cilantro and salt. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Five to 10 minutes before serving (depending on temperature of slow cooker) add masa and water mixture, cover and cook for about 15 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and other spices. I usually dice a box of mushrooms, too
    Just before serving, top each serving with shredded cheese and cilantro.

  • Cheesy White Cauliflower Chili
    1 tbsp. vegetable oil
    2 onions finely chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tbsp. cumin seeds
    1 tbsp. dried oregano leaves
    1 tbsp. chili powder
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. cracked black peppercorns
    1 14 to 19 oz. can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed, or 1 C dried white kidney beans, cooked and drained
    3 cups vegetable stock
    3 cup cauliflower florets, cooked for 4 minutes in salted boiling water and drained
    1 to 2 jalapeno peppers, minced
    1 green bell pepper, minced
    2 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese
    4 ozs. cream cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes and softened
    1 can chopped mild green chilies
    finely chopped green onions, optional, for garnish
    finely chopped cilantro, optional, for garnish

  • In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, cumin seeds, oregano, chili powder, salt and peppercorns and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Transfer mixture to slow cooker stoneware. Add beans and stock and stir to combine.
    Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours, until hot and bubbling.
    Stir in cauliflower, jalapeno pepper, green pepper, Monterey jack cheese, and cream cheese and chilies, if using. Cover and cook on high for 25 to 30 minutes, until the green peppers are softened and cauliflower is heated through. Ladle into bowls and garnish as desired with chopped green onions and cilantro.
    If you prefer thicker chili, mash some or all of the beans or puree in a food processor before adding to the recipe.NOTE: if you don’t have a slow cooker, you can certainly simmer this on the stove, stirring and adding liquid as needed.

  • Pinto and kidney beans, soaked overnight. Then I boil the beans til they're done. Then I add the canned tomatoes (2 cans) and the spices (fresh onion, garlic powder, salt and chili powder). Then I add cooked, seasoned ground beef, and let it simmer for an hour or more. Voila!

  • 1lb hamburger & 1lb pork sausage, cook together with chili powder, black pepper, and any other seasonings you like. Drain. In crockpot put meat, 1 jar salsa, 2 large cans (the 20-some ounce cans), 1 can tomato juice, and more chili powder & spices. Let simmer overnight for a good hearty lunch - this is hub's favorite during hunting seasons, with cinnamon rolls along with it.
