Here’s the nice thing about chili; it’s really hard to mess up and you can put just about anything in it. This is a great recipe to make in the crock pot. Prepare everything in the morning (or the night before) and have a hot meal ready to go by dinner time.
2 lbs lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1 stalk of green onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) jar mild salsa
2 (15 ounce) can chili beans
2 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup of chili powder
1/2 teaspoon white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
In a large skillet cook ground beef. Drain off fat and liquids.
Chop up all the vegetables and combine everything in the crockpot.
Cook on low for around 8 hours.
