The air is crisp, football is being played and all I want is something that smells good in my crockpot! If you are looking for a quick, yummy and seriously inexpensive chili recipe, this one is for you!
1 can diced petite tomatoes 15 oz.
1 can diced tomatoes with chilies (aka Rotel) 10 oz.
2 cans chili ready beans 15.5 oz.
1 can kidney beans (drained) 15.25 oz.
1 envelope chili seasoning (or less if you like it less salty/spicy)
1 pound cooked hamburger, drained (I threw in about a half an onion in with hamburger while it was cooking)
Put everything in the crockpot on low for a few hours and enjoy! Make a box of cornbread and you have dinner for your whole family for less than $7.00 total! And major bonus: your house will smell like you were working in the kitchen all day.
Tips to save money:
When looking at meat, look for markdowns. My go-to grocery store will put a "managers markdown" sticker on items that need to go quick and most of the time I can get 50% off the regular price. I either use it right away or freeze asap.
Buy generic beans, tomatoes, even chili seasoning. It all tastes the same and you can save major $$$.
