Salsa Beef Chili (Crock Pot)

"I believe this to be the tastiest, easiest, quickest-to-prepare chili there is!! For years I've played with chili recipies, trying to find or create the perfect one -- and now I've found it. I often do half ground pork and half ground venison instead of beef and I always use frozen corn -- either bought or home grown."

    I loved the flavor. I annoy a real spicy loving person so I didn't use but a half teaspoon of chili powder. Will use more next time. I will only use half of the salsa next time.served with cheddar cheese. Very very tasty. Used ground sirloin steak. I simply loved it.

    This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add corn and added another can of beans. I also made this on the stove top. I added cheddar cheese to my topping. My hubby thought it needed a bit more spice and added hot sauce to his.

    Very good and easy to make. Perfect when you're going to be busy all day, but will have a large group to serve that evening. For the salsa, I used 8 ounces of mild salsa and 8 ounces of medium-heat salsa. For me, this was just the right amount of heat.

    Great! Wonderful to come home to some good comfort food. Served it with cornbread!

    YUM - my family and I loved this chili! We loved the Tex-Mex flare to it. I think I may add another can of black beans and more carrots to it next time. I topped it with sharp cheddar cheese and it had the best flavor. It is a keeper. Thanks for sharing, Tammi!


<p>I live in beautiful western Manitoba, Canada. I'm a wife and stay-at-home mom with 2 daughters, Peanut (who turned 7 at the end of January) and Fidget (who will turn 5 in the middle of June) and a husband whom I call The Bushman, who's motto, lucky for me, is I'll try anything once! I'm a Mennonite by heritage as well as faith. I'm a born again Christian and we belong to a small Evangelical Mennonite country church where The Bushman and I are fairly involved. The church is made up largely of family groups -- most are related somehow. That's actually a Mennonite pastime, finding out how everyone's related to each other. If we're not directly related, we'll find a connection somehow -- your third cousin's wife's brother is for SURE my mother's father's sister-in-law's nephew!! See, isn't it amazing how small this world really is?! For fun, I enjoy photography -- my favourite subjects are sunsets, cloud formations, my girls, and nature close-ups -- reading, (John Grisham, Frederick Forsythe, Robert Ludlum, and Clive Cussler are my favourite authors), playing piano, and going for nice long walks, either first thing in the morning or towards sunset. I've even learned to enjoy it in the dead of winter, when I have no choice but to walk in semi-darkness. For those of you who've never experienced a Manitoba winter (lucky you!), 'the dead of winter' includes pretty much all of December, January, and February!! And up here, our shortest days of the year have only 7 hours of daylight, so if it's cloudy, well, it feels like no daylight at all! It's my favourite time to plan my day, pray, and daydream about what might happen if I'd ever actually buy a lottery ticket and win!! I love cooking -- baking not so much (mostly because it's not essential to survival and if there's baking in the house, that's all we eat!!) -- and reading recipe books is a favourite pastime of mine. I love the Company's Coming series of cookbooks, but my favourite is Taste of Home magazine. Since buying a premium membership here though, I've decided to let my subscription run out. I'll miss it, but I've decided there's really no need for it, since all the best recipes in the world eventually end up here!!</p>
