This is a favorite recipe of ours that we've modified over the years, and encourage you to do, as well. Almost any salsa and hot sauce combination will work -- based on your personal flavor and heat preferences. You may also want to double the amount of chili powder for more depth of flavor. This chili is very easy to assemble in the morning and then leave it to warm throughout the day. Perfect for when you have visitors and want to be sure "something" great is ready to eat whenever people are hungry.
Instructions[edit | edit source]
3 lbs. ground beef
1 15 oz. bottle Green salsa (Mild or Hot)

1 Tablespoon Brian's Medium Chili Powder
1 4 oz. bottle Holy Chipotle Flamin' Hot Sauce or Cackalacky Hot Sauce
Ingredients[edit | edit source]
In a medium sauce pan, cook ground beef mixed with the salsa (it is a green, tomatillo-based salsa) until no pink is showing in the meat. Place in slow cooker (crock pot) and add black beans, chili powder and hot sauce. Stir and let warm until hot (1-2 hours).
Note[edit | edit source]
Topping suggestions: sour cream flavored with the chili powder or Aussie Barbie Dust (1 Tablespoon per 8 oz. sour cream), grated cheddar or monterey jack cheese, chopped onions or diced jalapenos.
