  • i buy a packet of mccormick chili seasonings. the directions are on the back, i have made my own using my own spices and i find it turns out about the same as using mccormick.

    anyway, in a crockpot, add a can or two (depending on how you like it) of diced tomatoes, kidney beans, and tomato sauce along with the seasoning packet. brown the meat and add it in as well. cook on low for 6 hours. a few serving suggestions: i either serve it over rice with shredded cheese, or with cornbread. yum!

  • I pretty much do the same as pp...we are actually having chili today :)
    I use 1lb hamburger cooked and drained, 2 sm or 1lg can light red kidney beans drained, 1 can diced tomatoes drained, 1 can delmonte tomato juice (put as much in to your taste, if you use it all it will be more soupy) 1 packet mccormicks original chili seasoning. I also add salt,pepper,garlic powder, cayenne pepper powder, and chili powder to taste. all in the crock pot on low for about 6 can also add diced onions,bell peppers, jalapenos, anything really that you like. mccormicks has a variety of different seasoning packets and some are pretty spicy...we dont do spicy so the kids will eat it.

  • I have a chili recipe made with sausage instead of ham. meat. It gives it a little twist. Pm me if you would like the recipe.

    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.
    Just before serving, top each serving with shredded cheese and cilantro.
