~Super Bowl Chili~

Slow Cooker will be cooking away!
It's that time of year!  Tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday!  The day when watching the commercials on t.v. & watching the football game are both FuN!  And, you just do not wanna' miss the half time show.  You get the picture- spending time in the kitchen, cooking? Ah, no!

Hey, it's fine to get the dishes & utensils, but just not the day to cook.  But you gotta' eat!  The choice is not ordering salty "take out"  foods, either.  Super Bowl Chili is a great choice!  In the early afternoon brown the Ground Beef & place it along with the other ingredients in the slow cooker/ crock pot.  That small appliance will take care of the cooking detail.  When it's ready, remove the lid, stir the cooked ingredients & take out the serving ladle!  The great aroma will invite everyone to take a bowl & fill it.

If, there are any remaining portions later, cool & pack in freezer containers.  Super Bowl Chili freezes very well, too!      

Super Bowl Chili

1- 1¼  lbs. Ground Beef
1 small Green Pepper, cut into small chunks
(1) 14.5 oz. can Diced Tomatoes, drained
(2) cans Red Kidney Beans (about 19 oz. each)
Chopped Onions (I use 1 Tablespoon dehydrated Onions.)
Chopped Parsley (I use 1 Tablespoon dehydrated Parsley.)
2- 3 teaspoons Chili Powder
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
(2) cans Tomato Sauce (15 oz. each)

***and do not forget the:

Fat Free Sour Cream - Add a dollop on top of Chili in bowl before eating!
Rye Bread - for dunking

  1. Spray nonstick cooking pot of Slow Cooker with PAM.
  2. Brown Ground Beef in a frying pan.
  3. Place Green Pepper chunks in cooking pot.
  4. Add browned Ground Beef.
  5. Add drained Diced Tomatoes.
  6. Drain Kidney Beans.  Rinse in cold water.  Drain again.
  7. Place on top of Tomatoes.
  8. Sprinkle on desired amount of chopped Onions & chopped Parsley.
  9. Then, sprinkle Chili Powder, Garlic Powder & Oregano on top.
  10. Pour Tomato Sauce over top & spread.
  11. Place lid on top.
  12. Set temperature to High for 2 and 1/2 hours.  Then, reduce to Medium for 1/2 hour.
  13. Stir before serving into bowls. 
**I brown the Ground Beef before placing in the Slow Cooker's pot to remove the fat.
**The Green Pepper cut into chunks is added on the bottom of the pot first to prevent any too crispy Ground Beef. 

This Chili is incredible!  It's so good & it's so easy!  A great family style dinner that only needs to be ladled from the cooking pot.
