crockpot chili

i am not one for 'following' a recipe or 'measuring' ingredients

this is why i love crockpot cooking - cause you don't really have to do either of those things!

i make it different every time...i know some amounts of what i put in, and some i have no clue :)
1 lb ground turkey seasoned with chili powder while cooking
1 lb hamburger
(ended up NOT being able to fit a 3rd lb - sausage, b/c the crockpot was nearly overflowing!)
1 large can diced tomatoes
emptied a leftover jar of chili sauce that was in the fridge
2 cans hot chili beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 green pepper pureed
1 med. onion pureed
5 jalepenos from our garden pureed
1 package of mushrooms chopped
a lot of corn off the cob pulled from our freezer stock
a lot of garlic (we always use a lot of garlic - yum!)
onion salt
garlic salt
brown sugar

i might have forgotten something...but you can't really go wrong with chili!

one of the best parts about crockpot cooking? especially with chili? crockpot liners :)


  1. What time are we invited to supper? It looks delish!

  2. Oh my word, Rachel! You wouldn't like my chili. It has beef, sausage, kidney beans, tomato puree and chili seasoning. That's it. :) I used to be one of those kids that didn't like my food to touch so I certainly can't eat it all mixed in together! :)
