6 servings


  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.

  2. Stir tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, onion, jalapeno peppers, chili powder, cayenne, salt, garlic, and black pepper together in the crock of a slow cooker; add ground beef and stir.

  3. Cook on High for 6 1/2 hours (or on Low for 10 hours).

Cook's Note:

If you don't like jalapenos, you could opt for 1 green bell pepper instead. If you like it hotter opt for habanero peppers.

As with most chili, it would go great with shredded Cheddar cheese and bread.
