Beef Chili with Beans

wpid-IMG_20110411_220145.jpg

I made some chili in our Crock Pot this weekend that came out pretty tasty. Here’s the recipe I ended up using, a modified version of Beef Chili with Chipotle Chilies and Cilantro that adds beans and substitutes green chiles for the chipotles (I’m not a big fan of those):

  • 3 pounds lean ground beef
  • 3 cups chopped onions
  • 4 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 4 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 small can chopped green chiles
  • 3 1/2 cups (or more) water
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 14.5oz can of red beans
  • 1 14.5oz can of pinto beans
  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Additional chopped onion

Basically, you throw everything in the first list into the slow cooker and cook it on high for 4 hours. Top with additional onions, cheddar cheese, and/or sour cream as desired, and enjoy!
