Slap Yo Mama 3 Bean Chili
Fall is just around the corner and my gang has been begging for me to make my chili! It is by far the most versatile food I make, I like to make potato skins and set up a mini bar with all the fixins similar to our taco nights! The kids love making their own, and the chili tastes amazing with the potatoes topped w cheese, sour cream, and bacon!
I do my chili a little bit different than most traditional recipes. Here’s what I use for mine:
2 Lbs of browned ground beef
1 Red onion finely chopped and sauteed in olive oil (I had to omit this in mine, I'm allergic to onions)
2 Cans of tomato sauce
2 Cans of diced tomatoes with chilli peppers.
2 Cans of kidney beans (I used light, however I usually go with dark)
1 Large can of Bush's chili beans in sauce
1 Can of great northern beans
1 Tbs of Better Than Bullion (this stuff is amazing for any beef dish to add more of a meaty flavor)
3 Tbs of sugar
2 McCormick Chili packets (I found gluten free ones, and they are great!)
Start with sauteing your onion if you are using one, then add your beef to brown. Once those are finished, you literally just dump everything else into a crock pot and let it cook all day on low! Everyone will be so hungry smelling it cook all day, but the crock pot really lets all those flavors mix together and it tastes so good!
This is the perfect fall go to for football nights! Set up a fixin bar and let everyone decide how they want their chili! I usually will put out potato skins, tortilla chips, hot dogs and buns and Ritz crackers along with the cheese, sour cream, ranch, bacon and sometimes diced onions!
