Texas Firehouse Chili

This no-bean chili is similar to dishes entered into firehouse chili cook-offs all over Texas. This hot, Southwestern-style chili is full of spice, and the best part of the dish is how the smokiness from the chipotle pepper melds with the fire-roasted diced tomatoes, creating a filling, mouthwatering meal. By cooking this Texas Firehouse Chili slowly in the slow cooker, the cubed beef is broken down into small, melt-in-your-mouth pieces of flavorful protein. Enjoy hot with chopped green onions and sliced avocados on top!
