Bachelors Chili

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by The Bare Asp

Living by myself has forced me to start being more creative in the meals that I prepare. I can't make the larger dishes like I used to so I decided to improvise...and this was one of the results. I brought this idea up to a friend of mine that is a dietician, and he thought it was a great way to meet most basic dietary requirements.

This was a really tasty chili! I added some onion, bell pepper, and carrots and left out the aloe juice (never heard of eating that!) and the Worcestershire sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown beef and drain off the fat.
  2. Place in a crock-pot.
  3. Add tomatoes (stewed and whole).
  4. Add beans, corn and remaining ingredients.
  5. Cook in crock-pot until ready for serving.
  6. Now, I keep extra cans of corn and beans next to the crock-pot and as I take a serving, I open another can and add it to the mix.
  7. I have added Pinto beans, peas, mushrooms, and whole green chili’s as the week progresses and the really unique thing is that by weeks end, the pot you started with only slightly resembles what you have at the end.
  8. I have even thrown in shrimp and diced chicken to the mixture to make it even tastier.
  9. This meal can be left on a low setting the whole week and after a while it will morph into almost a gumbo.
  10. Great to snack on throughtout the day.
