Do you love Slow Cooker Chili as much as we do? Well then, you're in the right place! We've got an old recipe to share with you today and it's one of our all time favorite recipes. We've been making this for about 7 years now -- and as soon as the weather changes each year we break out the slow cooker and make it for our family.
There's only one problem... this recipe has got quite the kick to it. Like break out in a sweat but you don't really care because it's that good kind of kick. My husband loves it HOT. I like it semi-hot and our teenage daughter has to have a tall glass of milk when she eats this. So I wouldn't recommend feeding this to small children until you try it for yourself. I'd also recommend maybe starting with half of the spicy seasonings until you know that you can handle the heat.
To help with the heat I add sour cream, cheese and green onions. My hubby likes it plain, hot and spicy! Could we be any different, lol?
- 1 lb Browned Hamburger (grease drained
- 1 Yellow Onion
- 1 tbs Butter
- 2 tsp Chili Powder
- 2 tsp Chipotle Powder
- 2 tsp Cumin
- ½ tsp Ground Red Pepper
- 1 tsp Salt
- ½ tsp Garlic Powder
- ½ tsp Onion Powder
- 1 15 oz can Tomato Sauce
- 2 15 oz cans Chicken Stock
- 1 14.5 oz can Fire Roasted Tomatoes
- 2 15.5 oz can Kidney Beans, drained
Brown your hamburger meat and drain the grease. Add the hamburger to your slow cooker.Add your chopped yellow onion and butter to your skillet and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add your onion to the slow cooker.Add the remaining ingredients to your slow cooker and stir well.Cook on high for 4 hours.Serve with sour cream, cheese & green onions and enjoy!
