Slow Cooker Chili Con Carne Recipe

During the cold winter months I seem to use my slow cooker more and more to make dinner for my family. During those blistering cold & windy days...nothing warms you up more than a big bowl of homemade Chili Con Carne!

This recipe will make 3 to 4 hearty servings. If you have a large slow cooker, you can certainly double the ingredients to make a big family sized portion.

Slow Cooker Chili Con Carne Recipe

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
28 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
15 1/2 oz. can chili beans in sauce, undrained
2 to 3 tbsp. ground chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. hot pepper sauce
2 tbsp. brown sugar

In a large skillet brown the ground beef, onion and minced garlic until the meat is done. Drain away the grease and fat. Pour cooked ground beef into your slow cooker and then stir in the rest of the ingredients, stirring after each ingredient addition as you go along. Cover.

Turn the slow cooker heat setting to high and cook for 30 to 45 minutes on high. Reduce heat and cook on the low setting for 4-5 hours or until done. Turn off heat and serve immediately.
