Crockpot Rotel Chili

Pin It Now!




This is a chili dish I've been perfecting for over 20 years. Shortly after I got married, I followed a recipe that came with my new crock pot. It was terrible. So unflavorful. Now I love the chili that I make. :)


Crockpot Rotel Chili

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs cooked ground beef
  • 3 cans beans (I like to use 1 can of pinto, 1 can of light red kidney, and 1 can of dark red kidney.)
  • 2 14 oz. cans of chili ready diced tomatoes 
  • 1 can Rotel of your choice (I believe I use original.)
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • Taco seasoning mix ( I use my homemade one.)
  • Extra chili powder and salt to taste (and any other spices you might want to add).
  • Optional: 1 can Hormel chili without beans ( I added this to my latest batch of chili and it was yummy.)
  • Shredded cheddar and Fritos for toppings

Directions:

Cook meat and then mix in taco seasoning. I don't double the taco seasoning mix but add in extra spices to chili to taste. Add in all ingredients to crockpot and stir. I cook mine on low for about 8-10 hours. 

We like to top off our chili with shredded cheddar and Fritos. Sometime we use Saltines instead of Fritos as pictured above. :)

How do you like your chili? I'd love to know your tips and tricks!

Birthstone Inspiration: January

Pin It Now!



For as long as I can remember, I've loved having a stone assigned to my birth month. Mine is aquamarine, and I'm currently in a loving-all-things-turquoise-and-aqua phase. 

Garnet used to be my favorite color. In fact, I chose garnet for my wedding color theme over 20 years ago! Garnet is such a beautiful, rich color. I hope you enjoy these January gift ideas. It's so fun to give and receive gifts in a color theme!

*Although I haven't bought these specific items, which are affiliate links, I LOVE shopping at Etsy. :)


Happy Shopping!

I guess December has more than one birthstone, but I've always known it to be Blue Topaz. Because I love turquoise so much, I chose to represent that color here. 

I hope you enjoy these December gift ideas. It's so fun to give and receive gifts in a color theme!

Our family has been loving all things Harry Potter for the past 13 years or so. Everything from Halloween dress up to birthday parties to Legos, we've done it or bought it.

This was all before I knew about Etsy - Oh my goodness Etsy has it all!

I've had fun compiling a list of gift ideas for all of the Harry Potter Lovers you know. Have fun shopping. :)
