Additional Information

To keep sodium down, this recipe calls for rinsed beans and no-salt tomato sauce.

Less-tender meats cook best when they are covered with liquid. Tomato sauce keeps this round steak moist during cooking.

Set a slow cooker of chili on a buffet next to cooked rice and baskets of tortilla chips and warm cornbread. Surround them with bowls of sour cream, guacamole and shredded Cheddar cheese.
