Number of Servings: 15


    1 lb ground beef
    4 16 oz cans Ranch Style Texas Beans
    4 16 oz cans Mexican Recipe Stewed Tomatoes
    1 can chopped green chilies
    1 whole medium size onion
    3 whole jalapeno peppers
    1 tablespoon Chili powder
    1 tablespoon Cayenne pepper
    10 dashes Louisiana hot sauce


You can change the meat and the peppers any way that you like, to modify the amount of spice. We've made this several ways in my family. Usually served with cheese and crackers.


Cook the ground beef in a skillet with half of the onion finely chopped. You can also add some garlic powder, salt, and pepper while cooking to enhance the meat flavor.

While the meat is cooking, grind/chop up the stewed tomatoes. They are in pretty big chunks and don't make easy eating. Add to Crock pot. Place the remaining half of the onion, again finely chopped into the crock pot. Put everything else in the crock pot and stir.

When the meat is browned, pour everything into the crock pot. Yes, I mean everything, grease and all. If you have to you can drain, but it loses flavor, and it really doesn't add THAT much fat.

Heat the mixture in the crock pot for at least 4 hours. I usually make it the night before and let is simmer at 200 degrees all night so the flavors can properly blend.

If you want it hotter, just substitute one habanero for one jalapeno or better yet just add one habanero and leave the jalapeno in it also.
