This recipe is the Chili I grew up eating. This was how my mom made Chili and I never knew anything fancier. As I’ve gotten older and my love for cooking and baking was realized, I have ventured out to create other, more complex Chili recipes.
Quick. Easy AND Tasty.
Those all take time though. This, does not. I’ll assume that’s why my mom liked it! Her original recipe called for cans of condensed tomato soup. Since that’s just not going to fly around here, I snobbed it up a bit with some organic ingredients. It’s kind to blood sugar and the waist line, earning it a thumbs up from me. Get the soup you need for this recipe here.
The instructions will call for anywhere from 2-6 hours of cooking in the crock-pot depending on the setting, but the truth is, you can pretty much do this first thing in the morning and leave it all day long.
It is a thick soup and very versatile. We like to scoop in onto blue corn tortilla chips and I use left overs to treat the kids to Chili-Mac every once in a while (when I feel up to making homemade Mac and Cheese.) Find all the organic ingredients you need here, without driving to the grocery store.
This is great for days when you know the evening is going to be hectic. It’s just sitting there waiting on you!
