I made this Chili Recipe and my own version of Taco Soup before church one Sunday and left them simmering in two crockpots. I also turned the oven into a slow cooker for baked potatoes; I washed them, pricked them with a fork, and wrapped them in foil. I put them in the oven at about 250 or 300 degrees and they were so yummy! I could have pulled out another crockpot and made the potatoes inside that instead, but Ellie prefers the potatoes in the oven (Wyatt prefers them in the microwave). I love crockpot meals for after church and other busy days. My hubby used to say "Chili and tacos are the same thing, and I prefer tacos." Today, he actually asked for chili, so I thought this was a good day to share this recipe.
1 lb hamburger (or turkey burger...or you wouldn't have to use meat at all)-cooked
2 cans dark red kidney beans
1 can chili ready tomatoes (or crushed tomatoes)
1 can diced tomatoes with garlic and onion (or some other diced tomatoes with peppers, etc.)
2 Tbl and 1/4 to 1/2 Tbl chili seasoning
approx 1/2 Tbl onion powder
Simmer in crockpot on Low, or on stove top.
