6 Hr


Slow Cooker Crock Pot


60 oz
brooks chili hot beans
1 lb
lean hamburger
1 can(s)
tomato soup
1 c
diced onion
1 qt
home canned tomatoes, or large can
2 Tbsp
jalapeno peppers {or to taste}
chili powder to taste
cumin to taste
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Brown hamburger and onion, season with salt and pepper. Drain. Put chili beans in Crock Pot, add chopped tomatoes, tomato soup, {using large tomato can fill with water and add.} Add hamburger/onion mixture, jalapeno's, chili powder, and cumin to taste. I don't measure the cumin or chili powder but you can put two teaspoons each to start then taste after it's cooked for a while and add more as needed. Remember the jalapeno's get hotter as they cook. I just cook this all day in the crock pot depending on how soon you want it you can put it one high or low. If you're working and want it when you get home just put on low.
