It’s been cold and I’ve been busy at work, so it is the perfect time to bring out the slow cooker and whip up a batch of chili! This is a simple recipe that can be made on the stove top or (my favorite) in the crockpot, and it will really satisfy on a cold day!
2 lbs ground beef
2 Large cans or 3 small cans diced tomatoes
1 1/2 cups frozen kale
1 cup carrots
1 bell pepper
1 small head of garlic (or to your family’s taste- we LOVE garlic!)
1/8 cup chili powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp celery salt
salt and pepper to taste
Brown ground beef (or if you are short on time, you can use raw beef) and add to slow cooker, set to low
Put all veggies (including tomato sauce) in a blender- if you want to hide the veggies. I do this because my ninja will chop up everything for me- no more tears! Blend until smooth sauce is formed.
Pour sauce over ground beef. Add seasonings.
Stir together and cover.
Cook on low 4-6 hours (browned meat) or 6-8 hours (raw beef)
