Homemade Organic Slow-Cooker Beef Chili

This is one of my favorite dishes to make because I can leave it alone and it will do the rest!

This is What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup dry organic kidney beans
  • 1/2 cup dry organic lima beans
  • 1/2 cup dry organic pinto beans
  • 1/2 cup dry organic navy beans
  • 1/2 cup dry organic black beans
  • 1 lb. grass-fed ground beef
  • 2 -3 cups Homemade Organic Beef Stock, to cover the mixture
  • 1 16 oz. jar organic crushed tomatoes (I use the kind with added sweet basil)
  • 1 large organic yellow onion, diced
  • 2 large organic tomatoes, diced
  • 6 organic garlic cloves, whole (you can mince them if you’d like)
  • 4 organic celery ribs, sliced
  • 10 organic mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tsp. Real Salt or sea salt (more to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp. organic ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. organic cayenne pepper (you can make it the way you like it by adding more or omitting some of the peppers)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground organic chipotle pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. organic Italian seasoning (marjoram, sage, oregano, basil, etc.)

This is How I do it:

  1. Rinse all of the beans thoroughly.
  2. Prepare the vegetables to go into the chili by slicing, dicing, or cutting, etc.
  3. Place the beans, raw ground beef (if you’re worried about this, you can saute it first), and vegetables into the electric slow-cooker.
  4. Add the beef broth and crushed tomatoes and stir well.
  5. Add in the seasonings and stir well.
  6. If you’re going to be gone all day, put the temperature on low.  If you need dinner finished sooner, turn it on high.
  7. Check the beans and stir occasionally.
  8. Cook for at least 6 hours on high and 8 to 10 on low.
  9. Enjoy!
