  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion peeled and diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 chipotle chili in adobo sauce chopped
  • 2 cans dark red kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 cans tomato sauce
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 can light red kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 can chopped green chiles
  • 1 c. beer or beef broth
  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper


  • Begin by heating the oil in a large pan set over medium-high heat. When the oil is to temperature, add the ground beef, onion, and garlic. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the beef is completely browned and crumbled. Then drain and discard any excess fat before transferring the beef to the slow-cooker. Next, add the remaining ingredients and give a good stir to mix everything together. Set the crock-pot on "low" for 6-8 hours or "high" for 3-4 hours. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired and serve with cheese, chips, sour cream, and more!
