“Very simple to make, and the flavors are not too strong, so this chili is very kid friendly. I made it last night for picky eaters and had no complaints, just empty bowls. This is just basic chili, spice it up as you like.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse kidney beans and follow package directions for quick soak. (Boil for 2 minutes, let stand covered for 1 hour)
  2. When the hour is almost up, brown ground beef in skillet with the onion. (I pureed the onion to get the taste without the texture and that way the kids don't notice it) You may need to spray your skillet with a little Pam if your beef is as lean as mine. Don't drain.
  3. Rinse and drain beans and place in slow cooker. Dissolve bullion cubes in a cup of hot water. (I heat it in the microwave) Pour over beans. Add meat and all other ingredients along with salt and pepper to taste. Stir. You may need to add more water depending on the desired thickness of the chili.
  4. Cook on low for about 7 hours.
