Your New Favorite Crock Pot Chili Con Carne - Without Beans

READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
YIELD: 6-8




  • In a medium skillet brown the meat in olive oil, add salt and pepper to taste, move the browned meat to the crock pot. .
  • Brown the diced onion and minced garlic in the same pan and add to the crock pot.
  • Stir in the diced jalapenos, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, diced green chilies, cumin, chili powder, cajun seasoning, unsweetened cocoa powder, salt, smoked paprika, and water.
  • Cook 4 hours on high or 7-8 hours on low -- until the meat is very tender.
  • For more spice-heat use additional jalapenos or substitute a spicier chili. Since it's chili I assume you don't want less spice-heat so no instructions needed :).
  • Toppings: grated cheese, sour cream, green onions. Don't be afraid to add your favorite hot sauce if you want even more spice-heat. If you really like heat try my personal favorite - Melinda's Naga Jolokia, but be careful  :).
  • Eat with: corn bread, flour tortillas, good bread, your favorite beer.
