This recipe is one I received many years ago, when a co-worker of mine used to make it for our officemates every year when it got cold. It has become my go-to crock pot chili recipe and quickly became a favorite of ours... especially me BECAUSE IT IS SO DANG EASY! And lots of bang for the buck!
Take 5 cans of beans. Any variations. I usually use 2 cans of kidney beans, 1 black, 1 great northern, and 1 navy. But any 5 works...seriously. Empty each can including liquid directly into the crock pot. Brown 1 lb of ground beef (I add an onion) drain and layer on top of the beans. Add 1 bottle of barbecue sauce. I use Sweet Baby Ray's- it gives that sweet flavor twist to it that we love. That's it. Don't stir it together. Just layer and wait.
And here is what you get. We like a corn muffin with it.... you can add cheese and sour cream if you like as well.
Hope you enjoy this quick and easy chili recipe!
