Grace's Easy-Peasy Texas Chili

So I'm not really a cooking enthusiast, it takes way too much time to make something fancy that is just going to be inhaled in like 30 seconds (my boys, all 3 of them, eat fast and lots...and sometimes forget to thank the cook!), so I like to make it easy-peasy on myself.  I know it's not really chili weather yet, but this Monday called for something in the aforementioned "easy-peasy" I had some stew meat in the freezer that needed to be eaten.  So, here's my recipe for slow cooker Texas Chili..."Texas" because I used big ol' chunks of beef stew meat, and if you live in Texas beef is an essential part to any meal!  ;-)

Grace's Easy-Peasy Texas Chili

2 lb. Beef Stew Meat, seasoned with salt/pepper/garlic

2 cans Chili Beans (I used the Great Value brand, more bang for your buck!)

1 can of Red Beans (again, GV brand)

1 can of Pinto Beans

1 can of Zesty Chili Style Diced Tomatoes

Seasonings of your choice...sometimes I'll add some cumin, sometimes I just leave as is

Dump everything into your slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours, stirring every hour or so if desired.  Reduce to low for 2 hours.  Done!  Serve with Fritos & Shredded Cheese...for an extra healthy treat add sliced avocados on top!  This dish takes basically zero work, tastes great, is budget friendly!  See, easy-peasy!

So that's what's on the menu for tonight...I've already had a bowl and I'm going back for seconds!  Mmm!  

My two lil' dudes enjoying their dinner!  My big boy gets home late, so he'll enjoy his dinner after work...that's the great thing about slow cookers, your meal never gets cold!  Happy Monday, y'all!

Blessings, Grace
