Crock Pot Ground Beef and Beans

"This is wonderful served in a bowl, topped with cheddar cheese and crusty buns on the side, if you don't have a crock pot just simmer on top of the stove over low heat for about 3 hours or more."

    Excellent Recipe, However the directions are problematic. They say to use a large skillet or a pot to brown the meat and to simmer the ingredients. I used a 14 Inch skillet and it could not hold all the ingredients. I had to transfer everything to a large All Clad Dutch Oven and simmer the ingredients. I then transferred all the ingredients from the Dutch Oven to a 6 quart Slow Cooker for 5 hours on low; and the ingredients filled the 6 Quart Slow Cooker all the way to the top. This recipe produces a lot of food. Make sure if you use all the ingredients, that you have the correct size cookware. A large pot or Dutch Oven and a Slow Cooker that is at least 6 quarts.

    Very good, especially when served with some sort of bread. Next time I will omit the sugar. It was a little on the sweet side since I only had Bush's baked beans on hand. Lots of leftovers to freeze!

    I love all kittencals recipes. I did omit the kidney beans as I do not like them and no carrots on hand Still was fantastic. Thanks kitten!

    This was quite good! I didn't have any jalepeno peppers, but my family can't handle too much spice, so that was probably for the best. The only thing that surprised me was just how much food this recipe makes! I invited a friend over for dinner once I realized that we would have a lot of food.

    I tried this recipe because we were given a bunch of jalapeno peppers and I wanted to use them up. I put it in the crock pot before leaving for work and the farmers devoured it. A guy helping on our farm that week loved it so much that at our house we call it Ron's Chili. Thanks for sharing it.
