Lazy Girl Crockpot Chili
What can I say... I like dishes that are easy, simple, and don’t take too long to make. I call this “Lazy Girl Crockpot Chili”, because it’s four ingredients (say whaaa!?) and takes very little effort to make. No chopping, no mincing, no time consuming prep. I love a dinner that takes less than ten minutes to put together! Although simple, it’s still delicious. The spice blend gives it lots of flavor and a little heat (it’s spicy but not toooo spicy). Since the main ingredients are basic, I love getting creative with the toppings: avocado, shredded cheese, jalapeños, and tortilla chips are some of my favorites.
For the chili you’ll need (I got everything from my local Earth Fare):
1lb ground beef (organic, grass fed if possible) cooked
2 cans tomato sauce
One can chili beans or beans of your choice, drained
For the spice blend, mix together (this is enough for one pot of chili, but you could double or triple for future use)
1 T chili powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp red chili flakes
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
Throw everything in the crockpot and cook on low for at least 6 hours!
