It’s getting cooler here so I’ve been making lots of chili, soup, chowder and all that good stuff. There is nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of chili topped with cheese, some avocado, and crunchy chips. Which is why I make chili and soups of all kinds during the Fall and Winter. If I’m being honest, I make it year round. Even if it’s like 100 degrees outside πŸ™‚Β

Β SautΓ© some chopped carrots, celery, onion, and some salt in olive oil. You want to be sure and cut the veggies really small. If the vegetables are cut too big they will not soften and instead of soft veggies you’ll end up with slightly crunchy ones.

Add in ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Here is where you can either keep it all in the pot and add the other ingredients. Or, move the ground beef mixture to the slow cooker and then add the remaining ingredients.Β 

The chili does need to simmer for at least an hour for best flavor and results. If you choose the slow cooker then just keep it at low temperature and let it simmer for 5-6Β  hours.

You could simmer the chili for 30 minutes but the longer it simmers the better developed the flavors are. For best taste simmer for 1 hour.
