Shared Recipe. Uncle Tom’s Crockpot Chili

This is a shared recipe by Tom Clar.

A great tasting chili dish with a “Bite”: this is the ideal food to serve to your guests when watching football and baseball games.


2 pounds of extra lean ground beef.

1 can (28 oz) kidney beans, drained

1 can (28 oz) navy beans, drained

2 cans (28fl oz) diced tomatoes

1 can (14 oz) tomato sauce

3 packs Old El Paso Chile mix or a comparable brand (39/g ea. approx depending on the brand)

1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

3 to 4 oz drained hot banana peppers.

1 cup celery, finely chopped

1 cup carrot, finely chopped

1/2 piece red bell pepper, finely chopped

1/2 piece green bell pepper, finely chopped


1. Put all ingredients in a 5 to 6 qt Crockpot, and mix well.

2. Cook on low setting for 6 hrs. The longer the cooking time, the better it will get.

3. Serve hot with crusty or garlic bread and a beer or two.

Makes at least 10 to 12 hearty servings

Note: You may put the leftovers in the freezer for future use.
