Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne
Slow cooker chilli con carne is a hearty, comforting dinner perfect for busy weeknights. It is made with ground beef in a flavored tomato sauce, and is really popular with the kids!
Start by preparing the ingredients. Finely dice the onions and pepper, and grate the garlic or dice it very finely.
Heat some olive oil or cooking spray in a pan on medium heat. Add the ground beef, and cook until all the meat has browned. Add diced onions to the beef, and sauté for a few minutes until the onion is soft and translucent.
Then, add all the seasoning and garlic, and stir to coat the meat evenly for about one minute.
Pour the meat and onions into the slow cooker.
Add the diced peppers, canned diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and drained and rinsed canned pinto beans to the slow cooker. Leave it to cook for 2-4 hours on high, or 4-6 hours on low heat.
If the timer runs out and you're not ready to eat yet, you can leave the slow cooker on the warm setting to keep the dish hot for a few hours.
- Store leftovers in a sealed container in a refrigerator for up to 3 days, or in a freezer for up to 6 months.
- Add extra chili powder if you want your chilli to be quite spicy.
