This hearty chili is truly a snap to prepare. After browning the beef and stirring in the spices to give them a slightly toasted flavor, you simply toss everything into a slow cooker and let the mixture simmer all day. Garnish with sour cream, chopped fresh parsley, and chopped red onion.

So good! Most of my family doesn’t like it too hot so I omitted the cayenne pepper and I used crushed tomatoes instead of diced. Everyone had two helpings! I will definitely make again! Read More

This chili was so simple to make and the family LOVED it! It did come out a tad thinner than I normally would like but I'll just add less beef broth to start next time and that should do the trick. I put this together the night before and that worked out great. I will def be making this again-yum! Thanks for sharing Read More

Easy, savory, hearty, and forgiving if you’re a cook like me who doesn’t always have all the ingredients or seasonings. I’ve made this three times now and I’ve never had parsley. I found this recipe by accident when I had stew meat but no carrots or potatoes. Now I make this rather than stew. It has quickly become a family favorite. Read More

I really liked this when I made it a couple of weeks ago, so I made it again. This time, I doubled the recipe so I had plenty to freeze. I also used cubed pork and beef 50/50 which added a nice depth to the meat flavors. I think next time I'm going to hold off adding the peppers until about 2 hours before serving to keep just a bit of crispiness. Read More
