Slow Cooker 3-Bean Chili

Recipe by  

"This is so easy and so tasty. Freezes great for meals later in the week. If you want it a little thinner add an extra can of tomato sauce. Also the green chiles are not hot but add a wonderful flavor, so don't be afraid of them."

I made this for the first time tonight and followed the recipe exactly. It was ok, but way too bland for my family's tastes. My husband, who usually eats anything, was adding stuff to it at the table while he was eating it. All 3 of my kids didn't like it at all. I have definitely made better tasting chili, but this does have healthy ingredients.

This recipe was my first attempt at making chili. And let me tell you, it was DELICIOUS! It says it makes 10 servings but I couldn't get enough. Actually, it yielded about 8 servings. I feed my family of four and it was about 2 servings a piece. I didn't have fire roasted tomatoes so, I used regular diced tomatoes and was very pleased with the results. I can not wait to make this again. It is similar in texture to Wendy's chili. However, I think this is better! Loved it!

This is very good for those of trying to get more protein, my kids did not care too much for it but I enjoyed it.

Always a family favorite! We like extra meat, so we add an additional pound of lean ground beef. We also add a bag of frozen corn. Smells delicious as it slowly simmers!
