Mr.CBB’s Slammin Crockpot Chili $6.50

Mr.CBB’s Slammin Chili!

Last week I promised I would get you my budget friendly slammin chili recipe and here it is. I hope I had you all drooling over my Spicy Cheesy Bacon Corn Bread which I have accompanying this dish as it’s worth the extra time to make them.  For some a thick slice of fresh hot slice of home-made bread slathered in butter will do the trick but I wanted to try something new. If you like to try something different.. give it a shot, it’s very tasty.

Mr. CBB’s Slammin Chili can be as mild as you like it or as Spicy as you like it. We prefer somewhere in the middle to protect us from the morning after effect in the loo as we don’t have stomachs of steel in the CBB home.

There are many types of chili peppers depending on what region of the world you are in. They also differ in heat and sweetness but for the most part add tonnes of flavour to any dish. One of my favourite peppers is the pepperoncini Chili pepper.. particularly the one’s that are marinated or pickled. I can eat those one after another with some fresh bread.. you know the one’s you get at East Side Mario’s in your never-ending Garden salad…. YUM!

English: several pickled pepperoncini

The pepperoncini according to chili pepper madness is ;

100-500 Scovilles: Also known as Tuscan Peppers, sweet Italian peppers, or golden Greek peppers. They are sweet and mild in flavor, not very hot although they can vary and be found up to a medium heat level.

What is your favourite pepper?

    Mmmm, sounds good…will have to try out your version. :) Thanks, especially for the cornbread recipe.

  2. Wow! Lots of ingredients in yours! Mine: Ground turkey, 1 onion, 1 green pepper, 2-3 cans of mushrooms (I love mushrooms! lol), 1 can diced tomatoes, 2 cans kidney beans, 2 cans baked beans, garlic powder, chili powder. I might like chick peas in it but I don’t know about the hubby!

    • Ha… there’s not much more in yours than in mine Jen lol.. I LOVE mushrooms as well and certainly add what you like…. I never thought to use baked beans though, lord only knows I have about 100 cans in the pantry to use up.. good idea. Thanks for your comment Jen. Mr.CBB

  3. My favorite pepper is the Serrano.

  4. This looks really good. I don’t have a crock pot but will need to try this out when I get one some day. Do you sauté the beef first to hold in the flavour? I love frugal comfort food :-)
