Crockpot Chili

Crockpot Chili

5 stars from 1 rating of Crockpot Chili

MMM, MMM, Good!!

On a cold winters day or if your dealing with a hectic schedule, there is nothing more welcome than to come home to a simmering crockpot full of chili just waiting on you.

This recipe serves 12 and is so wonderful and full of spices. I have never served it at a potluck or for the family and had very much leftovers - which is a shame as I love to also use this for our chili dogs as well.

The recipe was created one day by me when we were under a sever winter storm warning and had the potential to be snowbound for several days. I wanted to make enough so that if we lost power we could simply heat and serve thus this recipe was born.

We hate bland foods so I basically opened my spice cabinet up and started throwing stuff in... It turned out awesome with no effort after the initial assembly.

Hope you enjoy Crockpot Chili as much as we do!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 6 hours
Ready in: 6 hours 15 min
Yields: 12 servings


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb bulk pork sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 4 cans chili beans, undrained
  • 2 (15 oz each) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 envelopes chili mix
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Emeril Lagasse Original Essence, Also known as BAM
  • 2 Tablespoons parsley flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons creole seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoons ground black pepper


  1. In a large frying pan, cook the ground beef, sausage, onion, and green pepper until meat is no longer pink and onions are transparent. Chopping and stirring until done-you don't want any big clumps of meat.
  2. When finished, drain any excess grease and add to your slow cooker (or dutch oven) along with all other ingredients.
  3. simmer on low for 6 hours or until ready to eat.


This recipe for crockpot chili couldn't be any easier and is even better when you reheat it. I like to can the extras, when I can get some, so that we have it on hand when we need it in a hurry.

It is really good served with traditional toppings or if you're like me, with peanut butter sandwiches. It's GREAT!!
