1 8 oz can of tomato paste
2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon oregano
3.5 tablespoons dark chili powder
Red Pepper flakes (to taste)
1/5 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper
Throw olive oil in a pan with the onions, let them hang out until the onions are clear. Toss in the meat, cook until you don't see anymore pink. Drain the meat and put into the crock pot. Combine everything else into the crock pot, stir until well combined. Cook on low for 7 hours.
OK, I just made this. Awesome recipe. Here's what I had to do differently -
1. skipped the beef broth because I couldn't find any without MSG at the moment.
2. A little more than 2 pounds ground beef but honestly, who's counting.
3. Added chipotle peppers and adobo sauce.
4. Added cut up pumpkin to make it go even farther. Not sure if anyone has ever eaten pumpkin but unless you add sugar and pie spice it is really just like any other squash. Delicious.
Oh, and even better is that this recipe almost filled my 7 quart crock pot to the brim. So we have chili for dayyyyyys now. I'll probably freeze some. Thanks Amanda!
