Chili (onion and garlic free)

I realized I never posted my chili recipe. Good weather for it!


1 lb ground beef
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
1 (12 oz) can tomato paste
1 (15 oz) can corn, drained
2 1/2 oz carrots, pureed (baby food) Or finely grated carrots, but baby food is easy and mimics some of the onion flavor
2 green peppers
1 tbsp chili pepper
1 tbsp cocoa powder
2 (15.5 oz) cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 cup water
1 tbsp hot sauce (my store brand is onion and garlic free. If unavailable, consider red pepper flakes to taste)


Brown beef. Drain grease. (Recipe can be made vegetarian by substituting crumbles.)

Finely process green peppers. Puree one can of beans. Combine all ingredients in a large crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

I serve with shredded cheddar cheese and tortilla chips.
