Ground Beef Crockpot Chili

Finally some relief from the summer heat and a bit financially at the gas pump! With the not so scorching temps outside, I have been craving some comfort crock pot food. Chili is one of those meals. My Mom makes a bean variety that is amazing and I miss it. Rob loathes beans so I have to make the no bean variety. When Rob and I first started dating about 11 years ago, he showed me this technique on how to make ArSE Kicking Chili with chunks of beef. I made it this recipe the other night. It is really easy and so amazingly delicious!

Ground Beef Crock pot Chili

One pound ground beef
a little olive oil
1 small onion chopped up
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 small can green chilis
1 Tbs. minced garlic
1 package Carroll Shelby's (brown bag) or Six Gun Chili Mixin's (yellow and orange bag)
1 medium jar Pace Picante Sauce
a little olive oil

Frito Scoops
Grated cheddar cheese
Sour Cream
Chopped onion

Take your Crock pot out of your cabinet and dust it off or go the local WalMart and invest in one. You will love your Crock pot. It will become your friend and you will soon depend on it. Pour a little olive oil in a skillet and saute your bell peppers and onion for a minute or two. Add your ground beef and start browning it. Only brown it about half way. Dump the meat into your crock pot. Dump Pace Picante Sauce on top of the meat. Stir it up a little bit. Take the big seasoning packet from the Chili Seasoning bag and sprinkle it over meat mixture. Stir. Add the can of green chilis. Put the top on the crock pot and set your pot to the low setting. Go do what you need to, then a few hours later enjoy the best chili ever. EVER! When serving put some Fritos in the bottom of your chili bowl. Spoon a big spoonful on the chips then, top with cheddar cheese, sour cream, onions. Eat it and LOVE it!

Sounds delish. I have a feeling that I can quit cooking when you're around.
