Money Saving Chili

I made this last night for my family and it's sooooo delicious and sooo easy!  SO I hope you like it as much as us.

In your crock pot throw in:
1 lb ground beef (mine was frozen)
1 14oz. can Diced Tomatoes
1 pkg. Taco Seasoning
1 jar of your favorite Salsa
1 sweet potato cut into chunks
1 jar Navy Beans rinsed and drained
1 can Kidney beans rinsed and drained
10oz of Frozen corn or 1 can corn drained
1 can of black beans rinsed and drained
A Palmful of dried Oregano and Basil
a dollup of sour cream (optional) 

Set your slow cooker to low and cook for 6 hours.  Now since you put that beef in frozen, every hour go and stir it and break it up so it cooks all the way through.  I stirred my chili every hour for 6 hours and it turned out perfect!   Serve with your favorite corn bread and handful of sharp cheddar cheese.


  1. Can you do this with thawed beef? I want to make this but won't be around to stir's sound great! Love all your recipes

  2. You absolutely can use thawed beef. Just make sure to cook it on low.
