HHF Grass Fed Beef Chili

We are getting ready for the colder weather here at the farm. This means we are processing the very last of our summer vegetables that we gathered before the frost hit and the garden was tidied up for the winter. It also means we are in the mood for warm, easy slow cooker meals. This slow cooker chili incorporates our beef and leftover summer vegetables. We also added a bit of sweet maple taste with our syrup. We certainly hope you enjoy it!

Ingredient List: 

1 - Large Yellow Onion, diced 1 - 15 oz can Tomato Sauce
3 cloves - Garlic, minced 1 - 24 oz can Crushed Tomatoes*
1 - Medium Red Bell Peppers, diced 1 Cup - Vegetable Broth, low sodium
1 - Medium Orange Bell Pepper, diced 1 - 14 oz can Black Beans, low sodium,
rinsed & drained
1 - Medium Yellow Bell Pepper, diced 1 - 14 oz can Red Kidney Beans, low sodium,
rinsed & drained
1 - Small Poblano or Jalapeno Pepper,
seeded & minced (optional, spicy fans only)
1 tsp - HHF Dark Maple Syrup
2 lb - HHF Grass Fed Hamburger 2 tsp - Paprika
1/4 tsp - Cayenne 1 tsp - Oregano
2 Tbsp - Chili Powder 1 tsp - Cumin



I started by slowly browning the hamburger in a skillet with a pinch of salt, pepper, chili powder, and cumin to taste. Then you drain the grease and add the burger to the crock pot.

In the same skillet, add some olive oil and saute onion, garlic, and all peppers until slightly soft. Then add to the crock pot. 

Add the tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, beans, vegetable broth, maple syrup, and spices to the crock pot. 

Stir until mixed well, and cook on low heat for at least 6 hours. 

Salt and Pepper to taste, and serve with your favorite sides. We love cheese, cilantro, avocado, and/or sour cream. Freeze leftovers if there are any!

*NOTE - Canned Crush Tomatoes are easiest, but we had about one pound of leftover garden tomatoes. We blanched them for 1 min, removed skins, and simmered them down for a couple more minutes before adding them to the crock pot. Yum!
