  • 1 onion – minced
  • 4 cloves of garlic – minced
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 lb ground hamburger I used lamb today – that is what is in the photos – but I always have made with burger in the past
  • ½ lb ground pork sausage
  • 1 15.5 oz can Cannellini Beans any bean would be fine – but I like Cannellini
  • 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes I used a quart of home canned tomatoes
  • 1 10 oz can Rotell Tomato and Green Chilis
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 4.5 oz can of chopped green chilies
  • 4 tbs molasses
  • 4 chicken bullion cubes
  • 1 tbs cumin
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • ½ cup water if you are using the home canned quart tomatoes, then no need for water – if using standard canned tomatoes – then use the water


  • Brown the onions and garlic in 2 tbs vegetable oil over medium heat in a skillet. When soft – in about 3-4 minutes – add the ground hamburger and the ground pork sausage to the onion mix and cook over medium heat till browned – another 3-4 mins.
  • Add the hamburger and onions mix to a crockpot and then add everything else to the crockpot and stir well.
  • Cook in the crockpot on low heat for 8 hours or high heat for 4 hours. Serve with sour cream, shredded sharp cheddar cheese and corn chips or serve over pasta or rice. Add garlic salt if needed. Garnish with chives. You can also cook on the stove top in a large sauce pot - heat over medium heat until heated through. (an hour)


Feel free to substitute ground beef for lamb.
