This chili is hearty and filling. You can use home-canned stewed tomatoes and pizza sauce, but store-bought tastes good, too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  2. Transfer to a 5-quart slow cooker, stir in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

This is a very thick chili, DD was eating it with a fork. I liked the addition of the basil, I don't think I've ever put that in chili before. I cooked mine for 3 hours on HIGH. Made for *1 2 3 Hit Wonders* game 2008

This is a very easy to do recipe. The flavor is extremely mild but if you like heat Tabasco or cayenne could be added. I made a half recipe and used Romano beans that were already opened, a LOT more onion that ask for, about 3/4 of a cup and a full garlic clove. The pizza sauce was a brilliant idea, I would never have thought to use it in chili. I appreciate the low fat content and that is why I chose this recipe. Thanks Lainey, I had thought that chili was off my menu for good.
