OK, so I have taken most of my summer clothes and put them in storage. The reason I say most is because we live in the south and the weather is wackadoodle! One day the temperature is in the 50’s and the next day it is in the 70’s! You always grab a sweater or a hoodie because you just never know! One thing I do know is how much I love chili. There is nothing I like better than a hot cup of chili on a chilly (or not so chilly) day. I have a few chili recipes, but the one my husband likes the best is my 3 Bean Crock Pot Chuck Roast Chili Recipe.
What I love about this 3 Bean Crock Pot Chuck Roast Chili recipe is that you can adapt it to your taste so easily. If you prefer a different bean or want to add in some red peppers, that will taste great! My husband likes his chili really spicy, so I will sometimes add cayenne pepper and some fresh jalapenos or green chilies. This chili goes perfectly with some crusty french bread or my Southwest Corn Bread (recipe coming soon!)
Another great thing about this 3 Bean Crock Pot Chuck Roast Chili recipe is you can use different meats. I love the chuck roast because I prefer that beefy flavor. I have also made this with a pork roast, ground beef or sausage or a nice flank steak. Because the crock pot will make just about any cut of meat tender, you can add whatever you like. Experiment and have fun!
Do you have a must have ingredient in your homemade chili? If so, what is it?
