Ingredients

  • 1 15.5-oz bag Hurst's Slow Cooker Chili Beans, with seasoning packet
  • 6 cups beef broth
  • 2 pounds sirloin steak or London broil
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 large or 2 medium onions, diced
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh minced garlic (I used an entire bulb)
  • 1 7-oz can chipotle chilis in adobo sauce (see notes)
  • 1 14-oz can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oregano

Cooking Directions

  1. Add beans WITHOUT seasoning packet (set aside to add later) and beef broth to a large slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours (see notes below about alternative cooking method).
  2. Cut steak into bite-sized pieces, season liberally with salt and pepper then sear in a large skillet coated with oil. Cook the steak in 2-3 batches – don’t overcrowd the pan. Don’t cook the steak all the way through, just get a nice sear on the pieces. Place steak and all pan juices into the slow cooker.
  3. To the same skillet, add a little more oil then sauté onion for 4 minutes. Add garlic and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Add contents of the skillet to the slow cooker.
  4. Remove 2 chipotle peppers from adobo sauce then dice (see notes about spiciness!). Add diced chipotles, 2 tablespoons of adobo sauce and remaining ingredients to slow cooker. Reduce heat to low then continue cooking for 2-3 hours or until beans are tender.
  5. Let chili rest, uncovered, for 30 minutes before serving (this will thicken the chili)
