Football Friday: Slow Cooker Three Bean and Beef Chili

This was our first pot of chili for the year!  It wasn't even that cool out but it's fall and we were watching football so chili must happen. This recipe was adapted from Joyful Healthy Eats.

1 lb lean ground beef
1 tbsp olive oil
medium onion (diced)
red pepper (diced)
28 oz. Crushed Tomatoes
15 oz. Fire Roasted Tomatoes
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder (optional)
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 cup water
juice of 1 lime
1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
shredded cheese
sour cream

In a skillet at the olive oil and saute the onion.  Once the onion is transparent add the ground beef and brown.  Drain off the grease and place in the crock pot.  Stir in the red pepper, crushed tomatoes, fire roasted tomatoes, cumin, chili powder, chipotle chili powder, garlic salt and water.  Stir and let cook on low heat for 5 hours.  Drain off the cans of beans and add to the chili along with the lime juice. Stir and let cook for another hour.  Serve with shredded cheese, fritos and sour cream.
