slow cooker sunday – jimmy fallon’s crock pot chili

. . .

Yah, I know it’s not Sunday, but 2.0 and I have started a new tradition. Slow Cooker Sundays! I’m betting a billion other people have started the same tradition, since google had over 4 million results for the phrase “Slow Cooker Sunday,” but whatever. It’s new to us. Though, now that I think about it, we often make a big pot of something on Sundays… but… well, now we’ve given the event an official name. And sure, that name might not be new to the 4.3 million of you who are already fully engaged in Slow Cooker Sundays, but I’m hoping you’ll just let me have this.

Anyhoo, because I work all day Saturday, and most of the day Sunday, I don’t have much time on the weekend for cooking. Or fun. Or posting recipes. Or anything, really. Enter the slow cooker. (And a post on Tuesday.) Jam that slow cooker with tasty ingredients on Sunday before heading to rehearsals, and return to a house filled with the smells of slow-cooked awesomeness. Oh, and then take the leftovers in your lunch kit through the following week. Brilliant!

So, on Sunday morning, I prepped the ingredients for Jimmy Fallon’s Crock Pot Chili. I stumbled upon it whilst visiting Martha Stewart’s website. I figured Martha probably hates comedians, so if she is willing to put her stamp of approval on Jimmy’s chili? Well, I’m on it!

Here’s the thing, this is the first non-Rosie-Beaucoup chili I’ve ever made. I’m nothing if not loyal. Now, you really should make that chili. It’s very important that you do. But, also, you should try Jimmy Fallon’s chili. It’s got cilantro in it, and some habanero chile, cayenne pepper and beer. That’s right, sista, there’s some yummy beer in there. And when I returned home from work on Sunday evening, worn down and bedraggled, I could hardly wait to try it. It was good. Really good. And since the weekend had pretty much kicked me to the curb, this chili gave me the kick in the arse I needed to go on living.

I didn’t tweak this recipe at all. Not a bit. So I’m just going to give you the link. You’ll be okay. Just click on the link below. And I’ll be back with more recipes later. I promise. (Are you crying?)

    • This chili was reasonably thick, but I hear what you’re saying. In the last 30 minutes of cooking, you take the lid off the crock pot, which helps thicken it a little. However, it might not be quite thick enough for the likes of you!

  1. How timely! I was just recently thinking that I needed to try a new chili recipe. I make chili every fall and for five straight years have only ever made Emeril’s White Chili. It’s amazing and rustic and earthy and I love it, but it’s time to branch out. I’m going to try this recipe. Thanks.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog too. I love yours. So many wonderful pictures and dishes!
