1 lb of ground meat (we usually use Turkey)
2 tbs garlic powder
1 or 2 large green peppers, diced
1 large onion, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
1/2 zucchini, diced
1 handful of shredded carrots
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can Vegetable Garden beans
1 can brown beans in tomato sauce
1 packet chili powder
1/2 can or bottle of beer (You can use water instead if you prefer, it just adds some liquid to the chili)
1. Brown ground meat in a skillet and drain extra fat and liquid. Sprinkle garlic powder over meat.
2. Add ground meat to the crockpot and then add everything else, adding the beer last.
3. Mix together well to combine ingredients together.
4. Cook on low in crockpot for 6 hours.
Once the chili is ready I love to sprinkle some cheese on top! I usually add a little parmesan and then some grated cheese as well. My hubby loves to eat his chili with some nacho dips to dip in it. I really like pairing my Zucchini and Cheese Damper with my chili! There's something super satisfying of really dense bread with a hearty meal like chili.
One of my ultimate favourite ways of eating up leftover chili is to make it into chili nachos! To make chili nachos cover your plate with a generous amount of nacho chips. Sprinkle re-heated chili over chips. Add salsa, grated cheese and jalapenos. Microwave for a minute or so to melt cheese. Remove from microwave and add some sour cream. Enjoy! (You might need to eat them with a fork!)
