Chili ~ Freezer Meal, Meal Appeal


CHILI – it is totally a favorite in our house…. Whether you eat it as is… with sour cream and cheddar, scooped with Frito’s, or as a topping for grilled hot dogs… this is a versatile dish that you can adjust to your liking… my husband always puts chopped jalapenos in his… but as is, is just perfect for the kids and I!!

Give it a try and let me know what you think….






2 lbs browned ground beef – I fry with minced garlic… drain – about 3 cups

1 cup diced onion

1 cup diced pepper

2 cans beans – I use one chili bean and 1 kidney bean

2 cups stewed/diced tomatoes – always in my freezer

3 cups sauce – any red sauce will do

1 cup/can rotel

1 packet chili seasoning


Everything into a freezer bag! Thaw 24 hours prior to cooking…

Cooks best in a crock pot for longer time on low…

~ Recommend 6-8 hours on low for ease BUT can be simmered on the stove top, watch and stir frequently!!

Taste test as you go… some like to add a TBS of sugar and others a TBS or 2 of HOT SAUCE or RED PEPPER FLAKES

Serving suggestions: Eat a heaping bowl with cheddar and sour cream… dipping either FRITO SCOOPS or Saltine crackers in it – OR serve up a grilled cheese or cheesy garlic bread.

We also love to make chili dogs…cover with cheese and broil!
