Love teaching my son to cook! It really is a bonding experience for the both of us. I hope he will remember these times in the kitchen! Ok, on to Chili:
EASY Homemade Chili:
You will need:
1 can light Kidney Beans
1 can Chili or black beans ( we used some organic ones we got for FREE)
1 can of diced tomato's "Chili style"
( you can use fresh but if you don't have any make sure to get the can that is chili style they taste best)
1 taco packet mix
1 onion( if you have one, today we didn't)
2-4 Mushrooms ( optional)
Sausage links (if you want a meat)
Dice your pepper, onion and mushrooms. Open chili tomato's, beans and pour into slow cooker ( I had my handy sidekick do this). We used a REYNOLD's Slow cooker bag for easy clean up! Basically you just add all the ingredients into the slow cooker and stir. The chili powder I just gave a few good shakes into the cooker. We also did add some salt and pepper. Once stirred put the cooker on high for about 4-6 hours. If you do want a meat with this I just fry up some sausage links when you are ready to serve. Cut it up and stir it in.
It's SUPER easy, yummy and makes the house smell GREAT!
