Short-Cut Chili Con Carne

Total Time

Prep 10 mins
Cook 3 hrs

This recipie came from HPBooks Crockery Cookery. It was my first crock-pot adventure. My family likes it. It is a great base recipy, with many possibilities. I have used one can kidney beans and 1 can navy beans. Don't use no-fat sauce. The chili will turn out like soup. The garlic is my addition, and can be ommited.

I love chili, so you can't really go wrong with it for me. This was good and great that I could just let it sit in the crockpot all day while i was busy with my other things.
