Award Winning Chili Recipe Ingredients
5 slices thick sliced, hardwood hickory smoked bacon
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 small yellow onion, diced
½ – 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
1 10.5 oz can beef consomme (you can also use beef stock)
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can pinto beans in mild or medium sauce (also called Chili Beans)
1 can kidney beans in mild chili sauce
2 pounds ground beef

Crockpot Chili Ingredients – Spices
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
3 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon Lawry’s seasoned salt
½ teaspoon ground pepper
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Award Winning Chili Recipe Directions
Prepare the vegetables for the recipe first. Roughly chop the red and green peppers and celery. Seed the jalapeno pepper(s), removing the seeds and membrane, then finely dice. Use more jalapeno for a spicier chili. Peel and dice one small yellow onion.

Cook the bacon in a large cast iron skillet, until the bacon is lightly crisp but not overdone. Remove the bacon and drain on a paper towel lined plate.

Saute the vegetables in the bacon grease for about 5 minutes, until tender. Remove the vegetables from the skillet, draining as much bacon grease from the vegetables as you can. Cook the ground beef in the skillet with the bacon grease. Cook the beef one pound at a time so the meat has enough room to brown and not steam. Break the ground beef into pieces about 1 – 2 inches. When cooked through, remove from the skillet and repeat with remaining meat.

Measure all of the spices into a small bowl, and mix together.

Now it’s time to assemble all of the ingredients into the slow cooker. Mix the beef consomme or beef stock in the crockpot with the tomato paste. Add the Worcestershire sauce and spice mixture, and stir to blend. Taste the mixture and adjust spices as you like. Add the cans of tomatoes and beans, all undrained. Add the beef and sauteed vegetables. Chop or cut the bacon into about ½ inch pieces and add to the crockpot chili mixture. Cover and cook on low for about six hours. I love that this is a crockpot chili recipe! It’s so easy to put together in the morning and have delicious chili ready for dinner!

Where is the written recipe?

You just got Subbed 💥

Pacific Blue says:

Chili is for fighting over. Some come from the con carne fundamentalist tribe and others are within the united ingredients of tomatoes and beans. Tread carefully pardner, you may never know where you may have walked yourself into. Just pick up the plate and compliment the cook.

Tracy Humes says:

I like my chili super hot at times our grandmother God Rest Your Soul she made mrs. Hippie chili and that chili would check your stomach in the outer space on a cold Winter's day and you're freezing a bowl of that chili would warm you up and then some I'm new to the channel so God bless you all and may God protect you during this horrible ordeal
