Brown 3 or 4 packs of elk burger with some oil. I typically use olive oil. Pour off grease and add meat to crock pot.
1 can of beer
1 regular can of corn
1 medium can of of ranch style beans (26 ounces?)
2 big cans of medium rotel
(28 ounces each ?)
I do not drain any juice off cans. Just dump it all in.
I usually put 1 small can of extra hot habanero rotel in too but that's optional.
3 or 4 tablespoons of chili powder
Couple tablespoons each of black pepper, cumin, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and cinnamon (for sure)
Pinch of salt.
Stir it all up.
Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours. But it can go all day too. You really can't overcook it as long as it's just simmering
If you have room you can add one more big can of ranch style beans or more rotel.
I chop up one big white onion and two bell peppers. Maybe1/2 inch pieces. One hour before serving, I dump in all the peppers and 3/4 of the onions. That way they are still fairly crisp. Add a couple good dashes (6-8) of tobacco.
Serve it. I dress the bowl up with the remaining onion and cold chow-chow.
If you are uber decadent you can add Fritos and grated cheese which is just awesome.
