Chili and Cornbread

I tried chili for the first time in the crock pot today and let me tell you, it smells wonderful! (It also tastes great, but since it's only 11:30am and we haven't had dinner yet, I really shouldn't know that) Aiden and I have dipped into it a few times. I "stole" this recipe from a couple of other blogs (A Year of Slow cooking and Melissa's Bargin Blog) and combined it into my own.

You need:
1 lb ground beef (brown before placing in slow cooker) ($1.67)
1 can kidney beans (I drained some of the goop, left a little in there) (.75)
2 cans tomato sauce 8 oz each (free! homemade from garden)
1 packet chili spices (.25)
1/2 bag shredded cheddar cheese (free from WIC)
1 package cornbread (.38)

Mix all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Sprinkle cheese on top before serving if desired.

Total cost for tonights dinner : $3.05

*UPDATE* We loved this! Both boys cleaned their bowls, Colin asked for more. Edward had three helpings and I had two. It was wonderful.


  1. This is pretty much how I make my chili too! Except I use 3, 28oz cans of diced tomatoes and I cook it on the stove. I *might* get my son to try it though if I made it with the tomato sauce - may try that next time.

  2. :) let me know how it works!

  3. It sounds yummy with the cornbread mixed in. I'll have to try that!
