Lazy Day Crock Pot Chili

Have you ever had one of those days when you know you have to cook but you really dont want to? This is a great recipe that is quick, easy, and great for fall and winter.


1 lb. ground beef cooked and drained (I also rinse mine under hot water to remove any remaining fat or grease)

2- 14.5 oz cans kidney beans, light or dark, undrained

2- 28 oz cans diced tomatoes undrained

1 medium to large onion, diced

1 green pepper, diced

2 packets of McCormick Chilli Seasoning or your choice

After cooking and draining ground beef, throw all of these ingredients into a crock pot and set on low. Cook for 6 to 8 hours and then serve! Could it get any easier? This is an all time favorite in my house and is also one that I grew up on too!

Top with shredded cheese or add hot sauce for a spicier chili. I prefer both of these!

Also, you can add a can of corn to the recipe. This tends to add a slightly sweet aspect to the chili which is nice when adding lots of hot sauce like me! ;o)

I also like to serve Cheddar Cheese and Jalapeno Cornbread with this meal....

1 box Jiffy Cornbead mix

Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Diced Jalapenos

Mix the Cornbread according to the directions on the box, and as much or as little of the cheese and jalapenos to your liking. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan and bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

Hope yall enjoy this recipe and let me know if yall want more like this! :oD
