Southwest Style Chili



Hey good lookin!' What's cookin'?

Today I am sharing with you some yum delish chili that is a favorite in our house.

I even took a picture of it, aren't you proud of me! :)

The original recipe for this chili is vegetarian, but I add ground beef to it.  You can do it whichever way your little heart desires.

Ingredients 

1 can (16 oz) tomato sauce

2 medium bell peppers
 ( for looks, I use two different colored peppers)

1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans, rinsed & drained

1 can (15 0z) red kidney beans, rinsed & drained

1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed & drained

1 can (14 1/2 oz )  Mexican style stewed tomatoes, undrained

1 1/2 cups frozen corn

1 cup chicken broth

3 Tbsp chili powder

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1 Tsp ground cumin

1/2 Tsp salt

optional: up to 1 LB ground beef 

Slow Cooker Directions
put all the ingredients (except beef) into slow cooker

stir until well blended

cover and cook on low 6-61/2 hours 
or high 3-3/12 hours 
or until vegetables are tender

optional:
while the chili is slow cooking, cook the hamburger on a skillet

drain fat

  add cooked hamburger to slow cooker towards the end of desired cooking time


This chili is seriously SO good and makes for great leftovers!  We will make a batch for dinner and then eat it for lunches a couple of days following. 

It's a  party in you mouth ;-)
Enjoy!
