No So Much a Good Cook Recipes…. April 9, 2009

Filed under: Recipes — Shannon @ 2:39 pm



My family is coming for Easter.  My mom and my sisters will all cook something so that I am not overwhelmed.  Well if you count bringing corn and sodas as cooking, because that is what my one sister will bring. Trust me, it is better that way. She may get ambitious and throw some rolls in the mix.  She is the unfortunate sister who just can’t cook. She was not sure what a clove of garlic was! Yes, seriously my sister called me and asked if she should put two BULBS of garlic in when it called for 2 cloves.

This recipe is dedicated to her. She needs some recipes that would take alot to screw up. Hopefully she can  plug in a crock pot and dump in the food!?!?!   No cutting required. Well suited for a lazy busy cook too.



 1.5 lb Ground Beef or Ground Turkey (not both, pick one) (not frozen)

1 27 Oz Cans of Bush Chili Beans

1 16 oz can of diced tomatoes with  onions  

1 12 oz can of kidney beans, drained well.

1 Packet of Chili Seasoning

1 heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder (not cocoa mix, cocoa powder)


Plug in crock pot. Turn to preferred heat setting (low if you are going to let it cook for more than 4 hours, high if less than).  Dump all ingredients in. Mix well. Go about your day. If you are home, occasionally stir, otherwise it will be there when you get home.

Serve over egg noodles or rice.
