Chilly Chili

Chilly Chili

Introduction

I came up with this recipe one night when I was in the mood for Chili, but not all the prep work of chopping veggies. I decided to let the freezer aisle do the work for me(the "chilly" part of this recipe). This way I get all the benefits of fresh produce, but I save a ton of time in the kitchen. This makes a huge batch, so I usually freeze half of it. I came up with this recipe one night when I was in the mood for Chili, but not all the prep work of chopping veggies.

Tips

Feel free to substitute any frozen vegetables you like. If you have a little extra time, some fresh celery is also great in it.


Directions

Brown your meat with all of your spices. While meat is cooking.
Place all your frozen veggies in your crock pot, mix together. Once meat has browned, add to the crockpot. Pour the two cans of tomatoes over the top. Cook on high for 1 hour, then stir to incorporate the meat and tomatoes in with your vegetables. Cook for an additional 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low. In the last hour of cooking add your tomato sauce. Serve with green onions and sour cream, if desired.
