All of my kids are crazy about chili and I have been looking for a quick and easy way to whip up a batch instead of having a pot on the stove boiling and simmering all day until it was ready to eat. I finally decided I would try making chili in the crock pot and I will never make it any other way again.
2 lbs lean ground beef
1.5 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 cans (15oz each) diced tomatoes — DO NOT DRAIN
2 cans (15oz each) kidney beans drained
1 medium onion chopped
Elbow Macaroni (optional)
Brown hamburger in a pan along with onions, 2 teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon ground cumin. Once browned, drain and combine hamburger and remaining ingredients (including 1 teaspoon chili powder and 1 teaspoon ground cumin) in crock pot. Once everything is in the crock pot give it a stir and cook on low for 7-8 hours.
