Beef Chili with Beans

I made some chili in our Crock Pot this weekend that came out pretty tasty. Here’s the recipe I ended up using, a modified version of Beef Chili with Chipotle Chilies and Cilantro that adds beans and substitutes green chiles for the chipotles (I’m not a big fan of those):

  • 3 pounds lean ground beef
  • 3 cups chopped onions
  • 4 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 4 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 small can chopped green chiles
  • 3 1/2 cups (or more) water
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 14.5oz can of red beans
  • 1 14.5oz can of pinto beans
  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Additional chopped onion

Basically, you throw everything in the first list into the slow cooker and cook it on high for 4 hours. Top with additional onions, cheddar cheese, and/or sour cream as desired, and enjoy!

    That looks DELICIOUS. As a proud Texan, chili is pretty a part of my DNA make up. I LOVE to cook a big pot of chili, grab some shredding cheese, jalepenos, and Fritos and make a “Frito Pie”, just putting the chili and toppings on top of the Fritos and throwing down. Mmm Mmmm good!

    It’s awesome to have you on Livefyre! 🙂 If you ever have any questions of feedback, please don’t hesitate to let us know!

    @JMattHicks It was pretty tasty 🙂

    So far, my only feedback is that this works awesome, and everything I’ve needed to tweak (CSS, etc) has worked perfectly. Keep up the good work!
