Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef boneless round steak, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 medium celery stalks, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 can (28 oz) Muir Glen™ organic diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (15 oz) Muir Glen™ organic tomato sauce
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 medium bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces (1 cup)
  • 1 can (19 oz) Progresso™ red kidney beans, drained, rinsed
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix all ingredients except bell pepper, beans and cheese.
  • 2
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 7 hours.
  • 3
    Stir in bell pepper and beans. Increase heat setting to High; uncover and cook about 15 minutes longer or until slightly thickened. Serve with cheese. Note: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

  • Add some zip to your serving bowls by brushing the edges of the bowls with shortening, butter or margarine then sprinkle with chili powder.
  • You can also use a 28-ounce can of whole tomatoes instead of the diced tomatoes. Use a spoon to break up the whole tomatoes in the slow cooker.
  • If you like chili with a little kick, stir in 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) with the cinnamon.
