Jimmy Fallon’s Crock Pot Chili

Jimmy Fallon's Crock Pot Chili

I am most entertained by people who sing and people who make me laugh. Visit my Kitchen Music page for my current music mix to cook and bake to. As for laughter Jimmy Fallon nearly always does the trick. And speaking of Fallon, I was looking for a Crock Pot Chili recipe and ran across his chili recipe, originally posted over at Martha Stewart, published back in 2009.  And his chili really is delicious! My husband loved it because it was heavy on the beef. My kids loved it because it was mildly spiced. I did help with that by leaving out the habanero and cayenne called for in the original recipe. And I loved it because it was quick and easy. Win. Win. Win.

    This looks good, but I’d like to take out the beer. Would an equal amount of broth or consommé work?

      Hi PJ, Yes, I think that should be fine. It’s just 12 oz. so a can of beef or chicken broth will work. It won’t have the same taste as the original but if you are wanting to take out the beer, that shouldn’t be an issue 🙂 Let me know how it turns out!
