Thick 3 Bean Beef Crockpot Chili

posted in: Cooking & Recipes | 1

With a little bit of research as well as trial and error (which makes my husbands stomach happy, lol) I have come up with this pretty simple crockpot/slow cooker chili! It goes together fast, is easy to cook and makes a great thick chili! Meat lovers can add 2lbs of meat and 3 cans of beans instead of 1 & 5, or bean lovers can add 6 cans & leave out the beef. You can also use Turkey instead or mix up the peppers adding half each or red, green, orange & yellow.  My family loves it with some freshly shredded cheddar on top and my 2 year old goes nuts if we say it’s ‘chilly’ in the house thinking we have mama’s CHILI, lol.
