Crockpot Chili


This is my new favorite chili recipe. Cooking the spices before putting it all in the Crock Pot seems to really bring out the flavor. It isn't overly hot, but it has a lot of flavor. Cook the black beans the day ahead, so you're ready to just throw them in the mix. If you can find no salt added black beans like the ones from Eden Organic, you can substitute two cans of those. If you use a leaner cut of beef than the stew meat, the fat and calorie content will be much lower.

1 T Olive Oil
2 Onions,Chopped
2 t Garlic,Minced
2 T Chili Powder
1 T Cumin
1/8 t Black Pepper
1 1/2 lb Beef Stew Meat,Cubed
2 cn No Salt Added Tomatoes
4 c Black Beans
1/2 c Water

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onions and garlic and cook 4-5 minutes, until onions are softened. Add spices and beef. Cook and stir 6-8 minutes, until beef is browned on all sides. Place beef mixture in slow cooker. Stir in tomatoes, beans and water. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours.
