My husband likes a lot of tomatoes in chili. So I am looking for a GREAT recipe that is very tomatoey. Also I was wondering if it is a big deal to add canned beans but NOT draining them?

This delicious slow cooker chili uses many spices to deliver a lot of flavor.

This is the recipe I'm making later in the week. Read reviews about adding extra tomatoes.

The beans I add to chili are in a chili sauce and I don't drain. I rarely drain canned beans, especially if I am adding them to soup.

I don't drain my chili beans and they are not seasoned.

Hi Soupy, We also like our chili with a lot of tomatoes, I use a large can of whole tomatoes (crush by hand) also a can of rotel tomato with green chilies, spicy tomato juice, tomato soup and yes leave the juice in the sauce. I add the spices by taste...I use a lot of chili powder, cumin, red pepper, salt and pepper. I like my chili a thinner consistency. I add celery, green pepper and onion. I don't follow a recipe. Chili is one of those things that everyone likes different so I think if you just experiment to see how you like yours is the best way to go.

I guess I should clarify that I buy chili beans that are seasoned for the chili so to drain the sauce would be a waste. I don't know what kind of beans you are talking about.

roxmj - I used to be a vegetarian and ate a lot of beans - and I learned from vegetarian cooks that it is best to rinse away the undigestible sugars on canned beans before using them because they can incite flatulence. However, if your beans are actually seasoned for the chili, then I would say that you aren't supposed to drain them or you would loose the seasoning. It seems to me that they have already been prepared by the manufacturer.

I use beans without draining and add extra tomatoes. Sometimes, I eliminate any meat and add an extra can of beans instead. Just taste it because your ingredients could dilute a bit from the addition, but it's easy enough to add in more!

The farts are in the liquid. Draining and rinsing the beans greatly reduces problems with gas. LOL

Here's my chili, and, yup, it's tomato-y. I always drain and rinse my beans if they're not seasoned. The liquid they're canned in just is yucky to me.

Thanks you for the comments and suggestions for my question. I can't wait to get the chili simmering on the stove top.
