A wonderful tasty chili recipe made crock pot easy. A great hardy everyday meal but good enough for that Superbowl party.
I have a lot of chili recipes, and I love them all. But my wife (Wifo) ask for a plain red chili. Just an “everyday” red beef chili. Not chicken, black bean, or anything else “special’. Just a “plain chili” as she calls it. I had this older chili recipe Crock Pot Red Beef Chili that was published only the second month of this blog and had a fair amount of heat. A little change here… a little tuck there and I had a recipe that I really could eat every day. I suggested an all chili diet but got slapped down. But she did love it.
A very solid 5 and yes I could survive on this alone.
Notes on Crock Pot Chili
This is a great recipe for what it is. It is an everyday ground beef red chili. You can make it hotter, modify the beans or the meat and still come out great. This is a thick chili. Add more water or a can of beef broth if you like your chili more like soup.
