1. I seriously laughed at this one Pam. What were we doing last night? Trying on snow boots and pants. What did I do today? Yep! Go buy Alex new snow bibs and boots. :o) SO true!

    Wade is the Chili maker in our house. I tried a few times and he suggested I should just let that be his domain. Last night we had hashbrown casserole (Kristin’s recipe) because it was in the freezer and I needed that dish to take to MNO tonight. Tonight I am making meatball subs and taking half of it to the business meeting tomorrow!!!

    Looks good! Looks somewhat similar to the bean casserole I make – ground beef with pork and beans plus up to 3 other kinds of beans (lately I vary it). And after seeing it with crushed pineapple at a church potluck, I now dd that as well.

    When my boys were in scouts, the adult leaders were big on teaching them dutch oven cooking (and they ate really well on campouts!). Every August they would have a chili cook-off and try to out “hot” each other in the spicy department. The men were very serious about this. Their “mild” was “hot” to me!

    What a great idea on a snowy day, and a nice family tradition.

  3. I made chili for the facilities team at our church last night (I make dinner for the men once a month) …chili…cornbread and cakeballs…Of course we had some extra for us…it was yummy! And mine is very simple too

    Ground beef, two large cans diced tomatoes, a large can of tomato puree, two cans of chili beans, an onion and chili powder to taste…


  4. Well, we were married in 1995 and have the same slow cooker. . .

    We had a panic when we had our first snow a couple weeks ago: we had no boots to fit the 6yo, and none of the local stores had anything that would work. Ack!

    I have that slow cooker too-married in 1996! Sounds like a good recipe. I’ll have to try that, but first I need to get most of the ingredients. You’d think with my son working at a grocery store I’d be more stocked up since I have to drive him there and back.

  6. Mmmmmmmmmm…. YUMMY! It looks delicious, congratulations for the cooking and the post! It’s great and lovely to have family traditions, it seems that William really enjoys the chili and he really has reasons to do so. It looks so good that I am going to cook chili tomorrow. Thanks for the idea and for the recipe!

    You left out the main ingredient.onions- .chili powder & cumin…Yours is sure not Texas chili..oh well enjoy..different strokes ….

    • I know…it is mild, but I cook for six kids. The chili beans have chili powder and the ro-tel has jalepeno peppers. Plus, this is my super quick chili. When I cook for adults I have a more authentic recipe. This one is great for when you forgot what to make for dinner! thanks for stopping by!
