Simple Chili or Simply Chili

Capt Chili - not the first to die cause I have yellow shirt, not red

Well, it finally came to this – Oct. 31st & I had to make some chili. It is way easy & I can dutch oven myself later in the evening.

This crock never ever fails. Did you hear me dammit, EVER.

The ingredients:

  • 2 cans kidney beans (sometimes I get nutty switch one out w/ black beans or some other bean, they all work) – 1 drained, 1 un-drained
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes – undrained (or you can go naughty & do 2 cans Rotel)
  • 1 lb lean cooked beef (could be chopped chicken or Yves Veggie ground whatnot or stew meat) – need I say, drain the fat fatty!
  • 1 tblsp cayenne + more if you like it spicy, I know you do…
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 can (4 oz) green chiles
  • 1 packet of the chili powder stuff (McCormick or store brand – doesn’t matter) – you don’t really need to add this, I just found one so threw it on in there
  • sour cream / greek yougurt
  • green onions (handful)
  • shredded cheese


  • Throw all that crap in to the crock & put on LOW for 8 hrs or HI for 4
  • must I clarify – not the sour cream, green onions or cheese – that would totally mess it up numb nuts! (Capt. Chili’s words not mine)

Top with:

  • dollop of sour cream or my fav – some greek yogurt
  • shredded cheese (the 4 way mexi stuff works wonders or tear up american slices & make a pentagram – your call)
  • green onions


  • cornbread – we had leftovers
  • crushed up saltines & then some full ones to dip with
  • some nice crusty bread
This is NOT Diarrhea

Bam girlfriend, you have yourself a meal & then some! Actually, I almost enjoy the chili a day or 2 afterwards since it gets thicker while sitting.

As the Great Pumpkin said: Give unto chili & it will give thrice later in bed.
Crock on you crazy diamond.
