Ooo! I don’t have the recipe on me right now (will post after work) but I will make sure to come back and post it for you. My husband makes the BEST crockpot chili. Whenever we have made it we never have leftovers because it is so addicting. It has just the right amount of everything, so your mouth isn’t on fire, but you get some good flavor. I’m almost drooling as I write this!

I will come back and post!

I usually make most things from scratch, but this is my MIL’s recipe and my Darling Husband absolutely loves it, so its what I make.

– 1.5lbs Ground Beef
– 3 Tbsp Chili Powder
– 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
– 2 cans Bush’s Hot Chili Beans (Medium works if you can’t find Hot)
– 1 can(14.5oz) Tomato Sauce

Brown the ground beef. Throw everything in the crockpot and cook on low for at least 8 hrs. The longer this cooks, the better it gets.

Oh, girl. This one. The best chili ever. We triple the tomato paste (so 18oz) and serve with shredded sharp cheddar and honey cornbread.

I learned from my dad to spend forever cooking the meat. Ideally, I spend 1-2 days cooking it (I’ll put it in the crock pot overnight for dinner the next day), plus a couple different chili seasoning packets, beans, dried red pepper, diced tomatoes, corn, and maybe a bit of sour cream and cheddar. The slow cooking time makes it really tender and lets all the flavors meld together perfectly. Same approach with sloppy joes for cooking the meat, except pulled beef is best over ground.


I always make cornbread to go with: 2 boxes jiffy, 1 can strained corn, 1 can creamed corn, 3 eggs, and 16 oz. sour cream in the oven (glass dish) at 350 for an hour. Best cornbread ever.

Here’s my recipe, adapted from my mom’s. It easily serves 4.

1 medium yellow onion, diced

1 lb lean ground chicken, turkey or beef

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 can light red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 can diced tomatoes with jalapenos, undrained

1 can condensed tomato soup

2 Tbs chili powder

1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Saute diced onions in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil until translucent; transfer to slow cooker. In the same pan, cook ground chicken (turkey, beef) until browned; transfer to slow cooker. While the meat is cooking, add remaining ingredients to slow cooker. Mix well. Cook on low for 4 hours.

We like to serve this with either shredded cheddar and some corn bread or a big dollop of salsa con queso and tortilla chips for dipping.

This one it completely different, but it’s something I make for FH that he LOVES and requests all the time. I call it my ‘Southwest Chicken Chili’


2 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Large jar of salsa
1 Can stewed tomatoes
2 Cans of black beans
1 Medium onion, chopped
2 cups frozen corn
Oregano, cumin, garlic, salt (I just eye-ball it, sorry no measurements!)

Sometimes I’ll add bell peppers or jalapenos to it. I just throw it all in the crock-pot and cook on low for about 10 hours (or high for 6ish), then shred the chicken breasts. Top with sour cream and cilantro… yum!
