Time on High: 3 to 4 Hours Time on Low: 4 to 6 Hours Every year for Super Bowl Sunday, I Make my Aunt's famous chili recipe. After bugging her for years for the recipe, I was finally able to pry it away from her. When she retired and moved out of the area to her new home at the beach and she finally parted ways with this awesome, hearty recipe. When she gave it to me, I couldn't wait to make. Of course, I have to put twist on my own twist on it!


Ingredients (Chili):

1/2 Pound ground beef – 80/20
1 15 ounce can light red kidney beans – lightly rinse to remove some of the starch
1 15 ounce can dark red kidney beans – lightly rinse to remove some of the starch

Really cost-effective and filling

Made a huge pot of this to get me through exam week and it was GREAT! Got all the ingredients for under $20 and it managed to keep me fed throughout study crunch-week. However, I did make a couple modifications: I added a 14oz can of Chic Peas, used that mexican-spiced vegetarian Yves Veggie Ground Round instead of the ground beef (it costs less, tastes pretty darn similar, and has much less fat) and I used green peppers instead of red (The color contrast against the tomatoes/kidney beans was nice). This is also great served on a bed of rice or quinoa! Will definitely be making this again!

Will make this again.

This tastes phenomenal. I would reduce the amount of chili powder to one tablespoon (not two) and the red pepper flakes down to 1/4 teaspoon (not one teaspoon). Definitely not for kids or for those who can’t handle the heat, even after the reduction on spices.

Due to gradual and even heating of a slow cooker, recipes featured on this site can be cooked in a range of slow cooker sizes. Most recipes can be accommodated in a slow cooker that is either one quart smaller or one quart larger than specified. If using a smaller sized slow cooker, please use caution when preparing your meal to prevent over filling. For smaller sauces and dips that call for 3 quarts or less, it is not recommended to alter the unit size.
