I am hoping to post more recipes this year!

We really like chili in the winter – well all year acutally!  I however have been bored with our standard turkey chili. Hubby had something he called ‘chili colorado’ awhile back. It was made with stew meat instead of ground meat. I went searching for some recipes online but wasn’t pleased with all of them. I was looking for something simple and something in the crockpot! I ended up combining some recipes and making my own!


Chili Colorado:


  • 1.5 lb Stew meat
  • 1 8 oz can Tomato sauce
  • 1 packet chili seasoning
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 can rinsed & drained black beans
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder


Put all ingredients in the crock pot, meat first, and cook on low for 8-10 hours.



Garnish with your choice of toppings. Our favs: green beans, cheese, fritos, and sour cream!

Enjoy! Let me know if you try it!
