slow cooker chili

i recently went home to surprise my mom on her birthday and acquired a few new cooking goodies.  (i also forgot my camera there so youll have to deal with the camera phone pictures)  one of the things i was very excited about was the slow cooker aka crock pot! :)  the day i returned to louisville, i was in the kitchen cooking.  this was the result...

mmmmmm.... chili :)  i made the concoction that night and put it in the refrigerator.  the next morning i turned it on low and let it cook all day while i was at work.  i was so excited to come home and walk into my apartment!!  the wait was torture but it was worth it...

(basically a little bit of this and a little bit of that)

28-ish ounces of diced tomatoes
(i used one can of diced tomatoes with onions and chilies in them and one can of fire roasted diced tomatoes)
1 can black beans
1 can of dark red kidney beans  
(drain both cans)
1 onion
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
(the green peppers were ginormous!!!)

i got to use my nicer dicer.  i love this product... like, a lot!  amanda makes fun of me for it but i think its amazing and use it as much as possible!!

2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano 

i think thats it.  you can add more of anything or add less.  you can also add other things like carrots and celery but i dont really like those in my chili.  

enjoy :)

  1. I love my crock pot! I use it for lotsa things. PS. You can make stock in it too. I make chicken stock, but you could do veggie stock.
