  • 2 lbs. ground beef,
  • 30 oz. stewed tomatoes (2 cans) not drained
  • 1 white onion
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2.50 oz. chili seasoning packets (2 packets)
  • 30 oz. kidney beans (2 cans) drained and rinsed
  • 64 oz. V8 juice original
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper


  • In a large skillet on the stove-top add the ground beef. Brown and drain.
  • Add the stewed tomatoes to the slow cooker. I like to cut them in quarters right in the slow cooker with a butter knife. If you are skilled with a paring knife you can cut them up by hand.
  • Add the ground beef to the slow cooker along with the onion, garlic powder, pepper, chili seasoning packets, drained kidney beans and V8 juice.
  • Stir and add the lid. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.



Low sodium or spicy V8 juice can be used in this recipe. If you also want to reduce the sodium level in this recipe use Mrs. Dash Chili seasoning.
