Easy mild chilli recipe? (Preferably Crockpot)

DS 10 keeps on at me to make chilli, BUT there's a huge list of buts
BUT I don't really like very spicy stuff (and it doesn't like me, so we agree not to meet)
BUT the only time he had it was at the Buffalo Bill show in DLRP - it was part of my helping, very mild and rather cold (they serve it in metal bowls and it takes a LONG time to get round all the people)
BUT it was very dark so he couldn't see what he was eating - he doesn't eat any beans voluntarily (not even houmus)
BUT I'm trying to shift some weight (off my but)

Any suggestions for a not-too-scary chilli recipe?

TIA

I have a yummy & easy recipe for a white chili. It can be made in crockpot and the heat level is easy to control.

1 large jar of Great Northern beans, we have them here in US, I don't know about UK. You can sub 4 cans of another white bean.
4 cooked chicken breast, shredded
1-8oz. block of cream cheese
1- 8oz pkg. of shredded cheese, monterey jack with/without peppers is good
1 jar salsa of desired heat
1 T. chili powder
2 cloves chopped garlic
chicken broth to thin.
Put everything in the crockpot--or over low heat on the stove. cook until cheese is melted and warmed thru. We like it thick, my boys like to scoop it up with corn chips. Use the chicken broth to thin as much as you like.
Better the next day!
Enjoy
Deb

Easy, Fast Chili

The chili I make is quick and easy. You can make it in a crockpot, or not. Very fast. No measuring.

ground beef
canned diced tomatoes (petite cut or regular or can use whole and break them up)
onion, diced (can also use frozen)
green pepper, diced (can also use frozen)
chili seasoning packet (or a chili seasoning blend that you prefer)
beans (or not, any kind that you like)


Brown & drain ground beef. Now here is the easy part if using a crock pot...
Place beef, onions, peppers, tomatoes and seasoning in crock. Stir together, cook on low until peppers and onions are soft. Add beans, cover and cook until heated through. If cooking on high, takes half the time.

If cooking on the stove, after browning and draining beef, put peppers and onions in pan, saute until soft. Add tomatoes, stir in seasoning. Add beef back in, cook over medium heat about 20 minutes, add beans and continue cooking until beans are hot.

Tomatoes - petite diced will cook down and almost disappear, regular diced will remain.

If cooking on the stove, I have had this done in half an hour, Crock pot, I usually cook on high and it takes about 3-4 hrs.

Nothing is measured, you can make as much as you want. You may need more tomatoes or beans. You can also stretch it by adding more tomatoes and/or beans.

My picky DD's like beans, I don't. So, I usually take some out before I add beans. I like tomatoes, DD's don't. So I usually use the petite cut and a small can of regular diced. DD's don't like it spicy, so I make it with a mild seasoning blend. DH will eat it any which way I make it. You can also sprinkle shredded cheddar, or a spoon of sour cream on top or spice it up with tabasco.

Thanks! Is there a health issue with the beans being in a long time? Or is that just raw ones?

NO. Sorry, I use the ones in a can and put them in near the end so they don't cook down and split and get soft. If using fresh, (or dried and softened) I would put them in earlier to make sure they were cooked.

This is the recipe I always use... got it from Allrecipes.com. Best and easiest chili ever. I do not use 2 cans of beans, I only use 1 can of light red beans. You can control how hot it is... I like a very mild chili.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili
Ingredients
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 1/2 cups tomato sauce 1 (8 ounce) jar salsa
4 tablespoons chili seasoning mix
1 (15 ounce) can light red kidney beans
1 (15 ounce) can dark red kidney beans

Directions
In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the ground beef and the onion and saute for 10 minutes, or until meat is browned and onion is tender. Drain grease, if desired.
Add the ground black pepper, garlic salt, tomato sauce, salsa, chili seasoning mix and kidney beans. Mix well, reduce heat to low and simmer for at least an hour.

You can make this in the crockpot... just brown the ground beef then add your ingredients.

OK, I cooked it yesterday and the boys LOVED it! I did a bit of a mix of everything, and it was only for us soI used:

1 lb browned ground beef
one chopped onion
1/2 red pepper, chopped (because it was lying about in the fridge)
tin chopped tomatoes (14oz)
tin red kidney beans
1t mild chilli powder
salt and black pepper
1T Worcestershire sauce
oregano - good shake of dried
1t fajita seasoning

I put everything in the slow cooker (the beef was frozen), adding the beans about 1/2 way (as we're not that fond of beans it didn't matter if they got mushy, but actually they kept their shape). About 5 hours - 1 on high then on low. I made corn bread (Hopp de Doo review - 1/2 recipe quantity) and we had 1/2 fat creme fraiche and grated cheese, plus some Doritos as well. Very nice for a change, and we had at least 1/2 the corn bread and 2 helpings of chilli left over for the freezer (about the size to top rice or a jacket potato).

Thank you all for your recipes!

For a healthier choice you can use ground turky, I brown that with the chili powder and then add it to the pot with peppers, onions, tomatoes and beans. Can't taste the difference

It was 5% fat beef, pre-browned and drained, so there wouldn't be a lot in it (you'd be surpruised how much fat mass-produced chicken and turkey has - we get free range mostly to cut down on that!). And as my two growing boys wer eating it I like to make sure they get plenty of iron. But thanks for the tip about the turkey - a bit of stock and worcester sauce works wonders too.
