Mel's Easy Chili

Sharing my super duper, quick and easy chili recipe today. This is my go-to because I can leave it in the crockpot overnight and by morning the flavor is so so good!

The best part? Not many ingredients! If you're like me, a lot of ingredients overwhelm me and I usually just skip over the recipe. This one only has like 6, and the only thing you have to prepare is the hamburger meat!

-1 can hot chili beans
-1 can kidney beans
-1 can diced tomatoes
-1 sweet yellow onion, chopped
-1 lb. hamburger meat
-1 packet of chili seasoning
-1/2 can water
-salt to taste
-noodles, optional

First, brown the hamburger meat. You can season the meat if you want in this step with some garlic powder, salt, etc. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.  

While the hamburger is browning, chop the onions. 

Put your beans, tomatoes, onions, meat, and seasoning in the crockpot and mix it really well. 

I usually cook mine overnight on low, so that when I wake up in the morning, I can put in a bowl for lunch at work. However, this could cook all day and be ready for you when you get home!

This chili is seriously so easy and it really does have a lot of flavor, despite not having a ton of ingredients. If you try it, I'd love for you to let me know what you think!
