This is one of my favorite dishes to make in the slow cooker, but you can also just throw everything in a big pot after browning the meat and let it simmer away! Either way, it’s super easy and such a classic comfort food.
1 lb. lean ground beef or turkey
1 can low-sodium chicken or beef broth
1 can tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
3 cans beans of choice (I like kidney, black, and pinto)
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
Throw all ingredients in your crockpot, and cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
Top with plain Greek yogurt, cheese and avocado!
Serve with a side salad and cornbread. I love this mix!
Note: Because this chili provides lots of leftovers, I almost always plan to have baked potatoes and chili dogs on the menu for the week so I can use it all up.
