Recipe: Crockpot Chili

I’ve always made this on the stovetop and let it sit all day and cook, but figured I’d just make it in the crockpot, because essentially that would be the same. Again I don’t have exact measurements of spices because I never measure and I make my own recipes up, so this will be a guess. Also, I didn’t make this as spicy as I usually do because apparently this pregnancy I’m hypersensitive to spicy foods and they taste 10x more spicy than they are.

2 15oz cans of Tomato Sauce
2 15oz cans of Diced tomatoes (either regular or chili ready)
2 15oz cans of Kidney Beans (I use one dark red and one light red)
1.5 lbs of ground chuck
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
2-3 Tablespoons of chili powder
1 Tablespoon of garlic powder

Brown your ground beef in a pan on the skillet, and season a little with chili powder, garlic powder, and S&P.
Drain your meat.
Pour everything into crock pot, chuck your meat in, spices, veggies etc.
Stir together. Cook on high for 1.5 hours, and then try and season accordingly if you need more spices.
I then turned mine on low for another 3 hours until dinner time.
You can also add some frozen corn kernels into it, celery, etc…I just made it how I have always done it throughout the years.

Serve with cheese, sour cream, and green onions to garnish. If you have leftovers you can make chili dogs, chili mac, chili nachos, or even freeze it as it freezes and reheats very well.



  1. This is a great recipe for cold winter nights. Especially with a new baby.

    My daughter is that way with spices…just guesses. While normally I want chili in he colder months with all the rain we’ve been having this sounds good. I don’t want to heat up the house so the crockpot is a great idea.

  3. I am always looking for recipes that are easy and that I can throw everything in a crock pot and leave it alone for a few hours. This is perfect. Add a little but of cheddar cheese on top…yummy! I also love your suggestions for the left-overs!

  4. I love chili! I’m always look for new recipes for it. Thank you!
