I wanted to share an awesome recipe that I found in Southern Living Magazine.
- 2 lbs ground chuck
- 1 medium size onion, finely chopped
- ½ cup water
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 can pinto beans (drained)
- 1 can kidney beans (drained)
- 1 large can tomato sauce
- 1 small can diced tomatoes
- 1 small can tomato paste
- 1 cup chopped green onion
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons ground red pepper
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce
- ½ bottle of dark beer
The original recipe called for one can of green chili’s, but I replaced them with fresh green onion.
In a crock-pot or a 6-quart Dutch oven, cook ground beef, chopped onion, crushed garlic over medium heat or until meat is lightly browned, and onion is tender. Use a wooden spoon to break up the meat as it cooks. Drain off fat.
Transfer meat into the slow cooker. Add, tomato sauce, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, ½ cup water, crushed red pepper, and spices.
Slow cook, covered on low heat setting for approximately 6 hours. Stir occasionally.
Garnish with fresh herbs, grated cheddar cheese, sour cream and enjoy!!!
