That's the name I've decided to give it :)
I am a sort of Sandra Lee style cook, cept instead of doing half easy/half homemade, i add in a pinch of 'change-the-recipe' to suit my family. I find it hard to follow a recipe to the T.
So this chili recipe came from a 'friend-of-a-friend'. And seeing as though i just got my Crock Pot for Christmas this past season, I'm new at it! I'm still tweaking to Our taste, but for now-this is what's in it. Served with fixin's on the side.
Someone Else's Chili2-3lbs. ground hamburger/turkey-your preference
1 jar Ragu sauce
1 can stewed tomatos
2 cans of kidney beans
2 cans of condenced tomato soup(but you'll only need one and a half)
1 packet of chili mix powder (found usually with other slow cooker packets, or gravy packets)
some chopped onion, some green pepper, some garlic, salt & pepper
Fritos Corn Chips or tortilla strips
Bread w/ butter?
can you think of anything else?
To start, brown your meat in a skillet with your chopped onion and garlic and salt & pepper to taste. Once browned, drain. While the meat is cooking though-start opening your jars and cans and add them to your crock pot (i like to rinse my beans first). Including the packet of chili seasoning. When you get to the 2 soup cans, you want to add one full can plus its equal can of water-then get rid of half the second can, and add water to make it a full can, then add it. We're just trying to eliminate it being too liquidy. Then chop up your green pepper (i only had a half of one) and throw that in the crock. Turn you crock pot on high or low to get it warming up. (the chili packet says 4 hours on high-or 8 on low~I do 3 on high-then 3 on low!) Once your meat is browned and drained, add it to your sauce & beans in the crock and wait :)
P.S. if it seems to liquidy still at the end half hour of cooking-remove the cover and return to HIGH setting till it reaches desired consistency.
