Crockpot Jalapeno Ranch Chili

I think Chili is a fitting meal for the dreary and cold weather we have had this weekend. I did a little experimenting with various ingredients that I had in the pantry and came up with this Chili recipe. Another new favorite for us!

Crockpot Jalapeno Ranch Chili

1 pound ground beef 
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 diced yellow onion
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 can black beans
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 cup water (beef broth works well too)
1 11oz can corn
1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix ( I used Hidden Valley)

In a skillet over medium heat, brown beef with onion and garlic. Add pepper and cook until slightly soft. Transfer to the crockpot and add the rest of the ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours. Add toppings of your choice. (We used sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese) Enjoy!
