the easiest dinner recipe. ever.

December 10, 2010 in domesticity,food,recipe

I know I don’t cook a lot. And I know a lot of you do. And I feel like I’m late to this whole “slow cookers save the world” party… But I guess I didn’t realize that slow cookers, well… save the world. Like, for real.

Yeah, I know. I should have already known this. But I guess I didn’t grasp just how insanely easy cooking with a crock pot is. 

So I’m sharing with you my favorite new non-baked goods related recipe 
{definitely a big step for me}.

The most awesome and easy chili ever 
{long name, huh? I might have made it up myself :p }


2 lbs of extra lean ground beef
2 (16 oz) cans of kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 (14.5 oz) cans of diced tomatoes, undrained {I use the fire hot flavor}
1 (8 oz) can of tomato sauce
2 medium onions, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons of chili powder
2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper
shredded cheddar cheese & sour cream


1. Brown the ground beef. 
2. Transfer to the slow cooker.
3. Add the next 9 ingredients.
4. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4 hours.
5. Garnish and serve with cheese and sour cream.

I’m guessing by BFs reaction to it, this meal will become a staple in our diets this winter.
