Cold Days & A Hot Bowl Of Chili.

We have had some cold days and nights here in Michigan. Although our winter has been mild so far, I’m sure the snow and the cold is sure to drag on.

One of my favorite ways to warm up on a cold day?

My crockpot going and some chili cooking on low all day.

So today I thought I would share my chili recipe with you!


1 lb ground beef

Half an onion

1 orange pepper

1 can of crushed tomatoes

1 can of kidney beans

1 can of tomato paste

Chili powder

Dice up your half an onion and orange pepper.

Brown your ground beef. Once browned add in the onion and pepper for flavor and to soften.

To your crockpot add your ground beef and onion and peppers.

Add your crushed tomatoes, not drained.

Add your kidney beans, drained.

Add your tomato paste and then stir all together.

Sprinkle on your chili powder and stir once more.

Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.

For toppings we love cheese, sour cream and frito scoops!

We also love a thicker chili but you could definitely add tomato juice to it as well.

I hope you love this recipe! What do you love to add into your chili?

Share below and as always, thanks for reading!

  1. This looks like a nice easy version of chili to make, I love that it uses a crockpot. I’ve never been a huge fan of chili, but my husband loves it so I will have to give this recipe a try.

  2. Since I’m super duper allergic to onions, I’d have to skip that part, but the rest of this sounds hearty and flavorful and delicious! I’m a huge fan of chili, especially in the winter and even more especially around the Super Bowl. So this came at the perfect time!

  3. We did chili the other night. We use a spice packet from the grocery store but other than that our recipes are very similar. I like to put a lot of different veggies in my chili but my hubby doesn’t. Either way it’s great to eat on a cold night to warm you up.
