Abby's "Famous" Chili

We had a chili bar at Caroline's birthday party and a ton of people asked me for the recipe.  I don't remember exactly who all asked me for the recipe, so I thought I would post it here and that way everyone can enjoy.  It is so good- make it this weekend and enjoy with some football!


(2) pounds lean ground beef
(1) medium green bell pepper, chopped
(1) small onion, chopped
(2) cans (15oz) red kidney beans, undrained
(2) packages (1.25oz) chili seasoning mix
(1) can (15oz) tomato sauce, I usually get the 24oz jar and use most of it
(1) can (10oz) diced tomatoes and green chilies

Open slow cooker liner and place it inside a 5 to 6 1/2-quart slow cooker bowl.  Fit liner snugly against the bottom and sides of bowl; pull top of liner over rim of bowl.

Brown ground beef, bell pepper, and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is no longer pink.
(I brown meat first, then add veggies)

Drain well.

Place beef mixture into slow cooker liner.  Combine remaining ingredients in a medium bowl.  Pour over beef mixture; gently stir with wooden or plastic spoon to combine.  Place lid on slow cooker.

Cook on High for 2 hours and then cook on Low for 1 hour.  Carefully remove lid to allow steam to escape. 

Serve directly from slow cooker. 

Top with your favorite toppings- mine are sour cream and fritos!

Do not lift or transport liner with food inside.  Cool slow cooker completely; remover liner and toss.

Hope you enjoy, just like the people below did!  :)
