Recipe - easy & delicious chili

I've been keeping this recipe from y'all. Mostly because it's delicious and in Texas, a good chili recipe is worth it's weight in gold. And could win you some serious awards. But, I'm gonna go against my better judgement, and trust that none of y'all will steal my recipe and enter it into a chili cook-off against me. ;)
You can easily add more chili powder, or even some cayenne, to make it spicier. Since Jacob enjoys eating the beans out of chili, we have to make ours pretty tame (although the flavor is on-point).

1lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
30oz chili beans
15oz dark red kidney beans, drained
15oz petite diced tomatoes
15oz rotel
16oz tomato sauce
1 tbsp. cumin
2 tbsp. chili powder

1) brown ground beef with the chopped onion
2) drain the kidney beans (do not drain the chili beans)
3) mix all the cans of stuff, drained kidney beans and ground beef/onions into crockpot
4) add seasonings
5) cook on low for 4 hours

We serve our chili various ways, I think this is a personal thing. I like mine frito pie style (with Fritos on the bottom, then chili, then cheese, and sometimes sour cream on top); Josh likes his with a shit ton of saltine crackers and cheese. On "special occasions" (think TX/OU or Halloween) I like to bake up some tater tots and serve the chili over those, with cheese.  

Honestly, any way you serve this, it will be good. This is the best chili I've ever had!

  1. Your crockpot chili looks so delicious. I can almost hear the rumbles of my stomach. Hahaha! Anyway, I really think your take on the classic chili is uber delish and I'm definitely trying it out later. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe! Happy eating!
