5 Minute Beer Crockpot Chili
I have been figuring out easy meals this month, but trying to stay as healthy as
possible, with 1 week to go until delivery this one tops the charts! It took me literally 5 minutes to make!!
I normally use my own spices for chili, instead of a packet, it cuts back on the unneeded sodium content. You can view my normal Beer Chili recipe. But, this one is all about quick, easy, and delicious.
I would not do this recipe with ground beef. It will be too greasy. Or you can cook the meat prior and drain it before adding it to the pot. But, it sort of defeats the...cutting back on time purpose.
Some like to serve chili over rice or noodles. I simply like mine on crackers. I also like a little kick to mine so I add hot sauce. I did not add it in the recipe though so make it as hot as you like. Also, some people don't like chunks of tomatoes, so just use crushed tomatoes instead, but not tomato sauce it makes chili too acidic tasting.
If you are on a budget, chili is inexpensive and goes a long way. If you are feeding a lot of people or want leftovers just double the recipe. This version feeds 4-6 servings.
I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!
