I am a summer girl through and through but I am trying to embrace the fall. After all there are several things I enjoy about the fall.
apple picking, pumpkin picking, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin spice coffee, brisk temperatures for my morning runs and cool evening walks, warm sweaters, boots and soup… boy do I enjoy soup.
Especially after a cool fall day, all I want to do is curl up with a nice steaming bowl of soup.
I bit the bullet the other day and bought a crock pot at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $25, I know living on the edge over here!
I was anxious to break in my new crock pot and christened it with some chili!
Crock Pot Chili:
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: low- 8 hours; high- 4 hours
1 lb group turkey meat (use beef, chicken if you please)
4 long carrots peeled and chopped
1 onion chopped
1 can corn, drained
1 28 oz can of plum tomatoes *do not drain*
1 orange pepper chopped
1 can kidney beans, drained
1 tbs garlic powder
1 tbs chili powder, more if you would like (I used another seasoning because we didn’t have chili powder and our chili was very mild)
salt to taste
1.) Place all ingredients into the crock pot, including the liquid in the tomatoes.
2.) Turn on low and cook for 8 hours. Set it and forget it
top with shredded cheese if desired!
What is your favorite season?
What do you like about fall?
I enjoy putting on sweaters or sweatshirts and walking in the brisk temps, but once it gets below 65 I will probably start complaining!
What is your favorite crock pot recipe? I am looking for some new ones to test out!
