  • Recipe Description:

    Before our family's food conversion, our favorite fast food stop was a side of Wendy's chili with french fries dunked in for good measure. It was hearty and fast -- but far from nourishing. If you want to serve your family a dish that's even more delicious and nutritious -- but just as easy! -- as drive-thru fare, this is the ultimate crockpot chili recipe you are looking for.

    Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 lb grass fed ground beef, cooked
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (or 1 c minced dry onion)
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp unrefined sea salt
  • 2 TB chili powder
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 c homemade chicken broth
  • 4 cans diced tomatoes (or 8 c fresh diced)
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, minced (or 1 tsp powder)
  • 6-8 c soaked and cooked beans, such as kidney, pinto, white, black, navy, etc
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (to reduce acid)
  • Recipe Instructions:

    In a large crockpot, combine ingredients, stirring well.

    Cook on low for 6-8 hours until flavors have melded together.

    IN A HURRY? Cook on the stove top for 45 minutes until simmering.

    MAKING EXTRA? Freeze in meal-size portions for an instant lunch or one-pot-dinner.

    FOR GAPS: use only white navy beans.

    BEAN TIP: Cook large batches of beans and freeze in two-cup increments in your freezer. You can't beat the price of these "instant cans"!
