I've made many attempts at chili over the years. I'm from Texas so I feel obligated to produce good chili.

This chili has beans so the purists will come after me. But, this turned out to be my favorite attempt so far. I don't think it is hot despite the peppers.

I've never made chili in a crock pot before. I saw the idea for the bean puree and wanted to try it out with this recipe.

It won at our local company chili cookoff this year!

How to Make Red, White & Habanero Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix together seasoning mix. This makes more than you need so I keep it for the next batch in a freezer bag.
  2. Brown the ground beef, drain, and add onion, and 2 tablespoons of seasoning mix.
  3. Combine tomatoes, chopped peppers, tomato sauce, one can of kidney beans, one can of white (or black) beans and 1 tablespoon of seasoning mix in a large Crock Pot.
  4. Take the other can of beans, put in a blender and puree.
  5. Add puree and meat to the crock pot.
  6. Stir together.
  7. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
  8. YOU WON’T USE ALL THE SEASONING MIX. THERE IS MAYBE ENOUGH FOR ANOTHER BATCH SO KEEP IN A BAGGIE OR SOMETHING.
