Chili-Basic Recipe

Chili is something I make ALL the time, and I can guarantee you, I have not made it the same 2 times in a row.  The basics are the same but chili is so easy to add your own personal variations to, that you can have lots of fun with making it your own. Oh yeah, and remember, I use organic ingredients and my beef is grass fed.

Jen’s Chili

  • 32 oz tomato juice
  • 30-60 oz chili beans (2-4 cans)
  • 2 lbs ground beef  (I will reduce to 1lb when the budget is a lil tight){grass-fed}
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1/2-1 t   dry mustard
  • 1/2-1 t   turmeric
  • 1-2    t   cumin
  • 2-4    t   chili powder
  • 1-2    t   garlic powder
  • 1/2-1 t   black pepper

Fry up your beef with the peppers, onions and half of the garlic powder.  Combine this and remaining ingredients in crockpot and cook for 4 hours on high or in a pot on stove and simmer on low for 2 hours.
