|The food items from the dollar store needed for this chili recipe|
|Easy easy easy easy chili recipe in the slow cooker!|
Blair from allfreeslowcookerrecipes.com issued a challenge to me: Make a slow cooker recipe using only products from the dollar store. I accepted the challenge (of course). I headed to Dollar Tree with my daughter and we had fun looking up and down each aisle and then finally deciding on a spicy chili. It was so easy…not to mention it serves 6 and cost $4.00! If you’re not into spicy stuff then just buy regular diced tomatoes instead of the tomatoes with the green chiles.
Makes 6 servings
2 (13 oz) cans of chili with beans ($2.00)
2 (13 oz) cans of diced tomatoes with green chiles (came in a bonus 2-pack so they were $1.00 total)
1 (14 oz) can corn, drained ($1.00)
1. Combine all the ingredients in the slow cooker. Stir until combined.
2. Cover and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours until flavors are blended.
3. Serve with sour cream and cheese, if desired.
Easiest recipe ever. Plus it was totally budget-friendly. It was a little too spicy for my taste (next time I would just buy regular diced tomatoes). I added some sour cream to cool it down a bit and that helped. But for those of you who like things hot hot hot you’d love this. If you’re cooking- challenged this is a good way to make “homemade” chili to bring to the potluck or to the neighbor’s house without really having to cook (they’ll think your a star).
4 stars. Thanks for the challenge, Blair!!
