Cha Cha Chili ~

Here is a superb chili recipe, slight heat and a wonderful depth of flavors. My family requests this frequently on  Sundays while watching the football and Monday night football. Garnishes are optional, fun to put out and let everyone pick and choose what toppings they like.


  1. Brown ground beef with onion, once browned add seasonings and Worcestershire sauce.
  2. While that’s browning spray Crockpot with Pam and open and rinse all your beans except the chili beans add to Crockpot, tomatoes and chili tomatoes.
  3. I add the half cup water to empty chili tomatoes can along with the Tbsp beef base mix and pour into Crock pot.
  4. Add the ground beef simmer on high for 1 hour, turn down to med and simmer for another hour and TaDa!
  5. Garnish with sour cream, cheddar cheese, green or red onions. Enjoy Fab Foodies!!
