Bill's Crock Pot Chili

READY IN: 8hrs 30mins
Recipe by Bill Hilbrich

This recipe uses the spicy flavor of green chili pepper, without the sharp heat of chili powder. The Chuck Blade Steak has enough marbling to remain soft and moist after 8 hours in the crock pot. If you like a little sweeter taste, use canned Stewed Tomatoes. There is nothing quite like chili to prove that Cooking is a Creative Sport.

Excellent Recipe! Replaced liquid from beans with beer and it was delicious. Also added more peppers for extra kick!
