Ah, fall. Leaves are falling off of trees, pumpkin spice lattes have returned and chili season has officially begun! Thankfully in the last week, I’ve received a coupon from Social Nature for a free Muir Glen Organics product, a brand that I adore and trust! I chose to use my coupon on a can of diced tomatoes. What a perfect opportunity to make my family favorite chili!
I’ve been perfecting this chili recipe for nearly five years. I’ve tried different spices and ingredients and I’ve finally found the perfect combination to achieve that full, satisfying chili. I also love to cook in the crockpot! As a busy wife and mother, the crockpot really is a lifesaver when it comes to getting dinner accomplished with minimal effort.
I simply start by washing my vegetables. Once they are ready to be sliced I pull out my Sharper Image Slicer. If you don’t have one, you must get your hands on one as soon as possible! I effortlessly chop my produce to the exact size I want, all while saving time.
Next I cook the ground beef. Once the meat is cooked, I add it to the crockpot. Next I add the vegetables, all of the spices, the Muir Glen Organic diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and the tomato juice. Give it all a good stir and set the crockpot to the appropriate temperature. In a few hours you’ll have a hearty chili that will fill your family.
