3 Alarm Chili

This 3 Alarm Chili recipe is quick, easy, spicy and SO GOOD!!!! There is no better way to simplify your family meal than with a hearty and tasty chili.


3lbs. ground beef
1 large yellow onion
4 garlic cloves crushed
1 large red pepper diced
1 8oz. can of diced tomatoes and green chilies
1 8oz. can of kidney beans
3 8oz. cans of pinto beans
1 8oz. can refried beans
1 16oz. can tomato sauce
½ tsp. crushed red pepper
4 Tbsp. chili powder
3 Tbsp. instant coffee
2 Tbsp. butter
Sea salt and black pepper


Without draining the juices off pour into the crock pot: diced tomatoes and green chilies, kidney beans, pinto beans, tomato sauce, and re-fried beans. Add instant coffee and stir until blended well. Cover and turn crock pot on to low heat.

In a large skillet melt butter and saute the large yellow onion, garlic cloves, and large red pepper until softened. Then pour into mixture into the crock pot.

Using the same large skillet, crumble ground beef into the skillet and add sea salt and black pepper to your liking. Brown the ground beef stirring often to break the meat up into smaller pieces. Once the meat is done add crushed red pepper and 2 Tbsp. chili powder stir and cook for 3 minutes. Then drain and pour the meat into the crock pot.

Add the rest of the chili powder to the crock pot and stir until blended well. Cover and turn crock pot on to low heat.

Tip: If the chili looks too thick add a can of beef broth to thin it.

Warning: The longer you cook the chili the spicier it will become!!!
