Easy Crockpot Chili

Many times I do meatless, only because meat is so expensive. I do like to cube up some brisket or chuck roast and throw it in at the beginning, if I have some available.  

Easy Crockpot Chili

Add to the crockpot...

4 cups dried & rinsed beans

8 cups water

2 soda sized cans V8 juice (or can use tomato juice)

1 can tomatoes

1 onion, diced

1-2 tsp salt

1/4-1/2 cup chili powder

1 spoonful (about 1 Tbsp) cocoa powder

1/4-1/2 cup sugar

1-2 Tbsp molasses

Lid it and let it cook on high 10-12 hours, or until the beans are done. Stir it about 7 hours in.

I usually start it at bed time, and then once done, keep it on warm or low until dinner.

Serve topped with sour cream and cheese if you like.
