how many servings does this make?
I made 7 bowls of two cups each and there was around 1.5 cups leftover (: Smells and looks delicious (haven’t tried it yet)
So glad, Lisbeth! 🙂
This is very tasty, a tad on the sweet side but very good. Filled my crock pot which means plenty of left overs to freeze, since it’s just me eating it in my house.
Stefanie @ Eatingahealthylife says
I really liked this recipe! So much that I featured it on my blog. Thank you!
Thanks, Stefanie! 🙂
Do you think this would be good with grounded pork?
Do you drain the beans or corn?
I drained everything! The only saucy thing I used was the tomato sauce. I used pinto beans and black beans, rinse the black beans. I also used petite diced tomatoes and drained them too!
Thanks, Amanda! 🙂 Kelli
Do you drain the corn and beans??
Did she get back to you about draining the Canned foods? I’m making this tonight and was curious to know.
Do you drain the beans and corn? Or do you add water or broth?
I drained them! Plenty of juice from the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Made this chili twice already making for a third time today!
Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth! I’m glad you like it! 🙂 Kelli
Is this good from the freezer? If so, would you recommend cooking it before freezing it? Thanks!
Maria Gonzales says
I think freezing it is a good idea if you cook a bigger amount.
I agree, Maria. Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Kelli
What size crockpot do you use?
This is very good, a little sweet. My husband’s only request is to add another can of kidney beans in the future. I think that will make it even better.
Hi Teri, Thanks for sharing! Thanks! 🙂 Kelli
Do you have to cook it the full 4 hours?
