Barbecue Beef Sandwiches with Onion Rings and Cheese

We’re crazy for these diner-style sandwiches, which get an extra punch of crunch from toasted buns and onion rings.

This is my hubby’s favorite chili!  Makes a thick and hearty  meal the day you make it, but it’s even tastier the next day.


  • 2 Pounds Ground Beef, lightly browned and drained
  • 6 Ounce Can of tomato paste
  • 16 Ounce Can of Bush's Chili Beans (I use mild for my daughter)
  • 1 Teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 Package chili seasoning
  • 1 Cup Ketchup
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 10 Ounce Can of diced tomatoes
  • 16 Ounce Bag of shredded cheese


  1. Step One

    ln a skillet, lightly brown your ground beef and drain it.

  2. Step Two

    Add the tomato paste, can of beans, minced garlic, chili seasoning and ketchup to the slow cooker.

  3. Step Three

    In another bowl, I puree the onions and the tomatoes together until smooth. You can leave out this step and just dump them into the slow cooker. I do this for my hubby and daughter who don't like chunks of tomato and onion.

  4. Step Four

    Add your grown beef to the slow cooker once it's cooked and drained.

  5. Step Five

    Cook on LOW for 6-10 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours. We think it taste better though the longer everything has to sit together and cook on LOW.

  6. Step Six

    Top with a handful of cheddar cheese. Our family likes to eat our chili with a side of a crackers or Frito's.

    This is so easy to make and was a HUGE hit with my family! We like it mild and follow the recipe. My husband prefers more beans, so the second time I made it with half of the ground beef and double the chili beans.
