I made this one this past weekend for the first time and it was really delicious!  I also threw in a bag of frozen corn that wasn’t included in the original recipe.  Was a hit ๐Ÿ™‚

This is what I do when I want a simple chili.  And by simple I mean I literally have 5 minutes in the morning to throw this in the crockpot and scoot out the door.


– 1 lb ground beef (or ground whatever you want to use)

– 3 cans of tomatoes (I usually go for ones with chilles in them or southwestern style — SO likes a little kick)

– 1 can of tomato sauce

– 2 cans kidney beans

– water (as little or as much as you’d like — I usually do about 2 or 3 tablespoons — we like chunkier chili)

Throw all of that in a crock pot & stir.  Then I add about 2 or 3 tablespoons of chili powder, some onion powder, some garlic powder, some oregano and a dash of crushed red peppers.  Stir again.  Crockpot on low for 6-8 hours.  Delish!


Sometimes I will cut up a pepper for the SO.  I don’t eat onions, hence why I only use onion powder.  You can certainly dice up some onions and throw them in there as well.

I usually just throw tomato juice (that either my Mother-In-Law or my mom has canned), some ground beef, red kidney beans, butter beans, and chili beans and then cut up potatoes, and whatever else I want in it. Let it simmer all day in crock pot..

Mmmm…. I love chili! My recipe is fairly similar to ones already posted, but I thought I’d share it anyway.

1 lb ground meat (turkey, beef, chicken, whatever you like)

1 large onion chopped

~5 cloves garlic, minced (more or less depending on what you like – I love garlic, so I tend to put a lot in)

1 small can tomato paste

2 cans diced tomatoes with green chilies

3 cans drained beans (I use one black, one pinto, one red kidney usually)

1 packet of chili seasoning

1 cup (or more) water with a cube of beef boullion dissolved in it.  I use as much water as needed to bring the liquid level up close to the top of my ingredients and add more boullion cubes if I am using 2 or more cups of water. 

Stir to mix ingredients evenly, then cook in slow cooker for 6 hours on high.  To thicken the chili up a little after cooking, add a roux just before serving.  I usually use 2 or 3 tablespoons melted butter and an equal amount of flour mixed together for the whole pot.  Super easy and super tasty!  Usually, this makes enough to feed my husband and I for at least 3 meals (more if we add rice).

I made chili just the other day!  I don’t measure, I just throw stuff in.  ๐Ÿ™‚

1 pkg (~1.25lb) ground turkey, browned

1 med onion, diced and sauteed (I don’t like onion, so cooking makes it taste better to me, totally ok to just toss it in)

2 cloves of garlic, cooked w/ onion (again, could just throw in)

2 cans of beans, rinsed

2 cans diced tomatoes

(hubs said it needed more thick tomato sauce, so feel free to add some ketchup or a small can of tomato paste)

a bunch of Chili 3000 (from Penzey’s, or chili powder)

little cumin

little cayenne

little oregano (anything that’s good on chicken helps the turkey taste good)


enough water so you can mix it up to start

cook on “low” while you work… come home to house smelling delish and dinner ready to eat

I’m interested in trying chili in my crockpot.  I’ve looked at a few recipes online which suggest that you need to cook the ground beef/turkey/chicken before adding it to the slow cooker.  Is this how you do it?  It would be ideal if I could just dump it all in the slow cooker before leaving for work rather than needing to brown the meat and washing the pot from doing that.  I’m willing to do it if it’s necessary, I was just curious what others do…
