Crock Pot Chili

Back to Super Bowl Foods today, we have a super easy batch of Chili in the crock pot.  Serving a pot of chili for a party will save you a lot of time since the cooking is done before the guests arrive and will allow you to enjoy the party with your guests.

This is a more tomato-based chili than I have made in the past and I was not sure if my family would give this dish a thumbs up or not.  But, to my surprise, the kids liked this version even more.  It may have been the sweetness of the tomatoes or maybe the not-too-spicy seasonings, but this got rave reviews and, as a bonus, it saved me a lot of time by cooking with the crock pot!  The spice mixture makes enough for about 3 batches of chili so be sure to save the mix in an airtight container to use for your next batch of chili!  You can also make this dish with a little more of the spice mix if you like a more spicy chili.

As an extra bonus, this chili will also be great on top of Chili Hot Dogs!

Seasoning Mix
4 TB  Chili Powder
2 tsp  Ground Coriander
2 1/2 tsp  Ground Cumin
1 1/2 tsp  Garlic Powder
1 1/2 tsp  Onion Powder
1 tsp  Dried Oregano
1/2 tsp  Cayenne Pepper
1/2 tsp  Black Pepper

2 lbs  Lean Ground Beef
1 small Onion, finely minced
1 28-oz can  Crushed Tomatoes
1 15-oz can  Chili Beans in Medium Sauce

In a small bowl, mix together dry spices;  set aside.

In a large skillet, cook ground beef until cooked through and drain.  Add the onion and 3 teaspoons of the seasoning mix.

In the crock pot, add tomatoes, beans and 2 more teaspoons of the seasoning mix.  Stir to combine, then add the ground beef to the crock pot, stir again, and cook on LOW for 6 - 8 hours.
