Crockpot chili

We found a great recipe for chili! It was very simple but the best chili I've ever had. It deff has a kick to it if you don't like things that are spicy I wouldn't add as much cayenne pepper! Hope you all try it out! Tell me what you think :) 

We made a few changes to the recipe 


2 pounds ground beef
1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 14-ounce cans diced tomatoes, juice reserved (we used rotelle for added spice!) 
2 14-ounce cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed (we used chili beans with sauce) 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  1. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat and brown the ground beef, breaking up any large chunks with a wooden spoon.
  2. When no more pink remains, drain off excess fat, leaving one tablespoon in the pan. Transfer cooked beef to a large bowl and set aside. Return pan to stove.
  3. Saute onions, bell pepper, jalapeño and cumin until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer meat, onions, bell pepper, jalapeño, tomatoes with juices reserved, beans, salt, chili powder and cayenne to the slow-cooker, crockpot or heavy bottomed pot on the stove.
  5. Cover, set to low heat and cook for 4-6 hours. 
  6. Serve over rice or with cornbread with the toppings of your choice! We chose rice and cheese everything taste better with cheese right?!
