Baked Bean Chili

I’m certain the only way I have ever made chili was in the Crock-Pot. I might have started with a recipe I got in 8th grade Home Economics class. Wait, did they have Crock-Pots back then? I’ve fine tuned this simple recipe over the past 30+ years and I have never made chili with any bean other than baked beans. Simply because I just don’t like any other beans. You would be surprised, it’s actually very good.

Baked Bean Chili

I’m certain the only way I have ever made chili was in the Crock-Pot. I might have started with a recipe I got in 8th grade Home Economics class. Wait, did they have Crock-Pots back then? I’ve fine tuned this simple recipe over the past 30+ years and I have never made chili with any bean other than baked beans. Simply because I just don’t like any other beans. You would be surprised, it’s actually very good.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans (28 ounce) baked beans
  • 1 can (14 ounce) tomatoes petite diced
  • 2 pounds chili meat
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic chopped
  • 1 teaspoon jerk seasoning

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in crock pot.
  2. Cover, cook on low 10-12 hours or on high 5-6 hours.
  3. About 3 hours into the cooking time I smash the beans slightly with a potato masher, this will thicken the chili.
  4. Serve hot with some fresh baked cornbread or crackers.
