Heartland Cooks: Emily's Easy Game Day Chili

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The weather is turning colder, and Friday nights mean Heartland football.

This week's Heartland Cook, Portageville native Emily Kellams, says her Game Day Chili recipe is a touchdown among her family and friends. It's easy and affordable - best of all, Emily has tips to shorten the cook time.

Ingredients:

  • 2 packages French's Chili-O mix
  • 2 lbs. Ground Chuck
  • 2 cans chili beans
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 1/4 cup Liquid Smoke

Directions:

Brown 2 pounds of ground chuck in a frying pan. Drain and add to crock pot.

Add French's Chili-O mix, chili beans, diced tomatoes, Rotel and Liquid Smoke to crock pot and stir well.

Cook in crock pot on low 6-8 hours, simmer on stove on medium heat until Chili cooks down and flavors meld together well.

Emily's Tip: If you're pressed for time - you can cook the chili in your crock pot insert in the microwave. I usually cover mine with paper towels and cook for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
