Delish, Filling, and Easy Crock Pot Chili

Updated on January 17, 2012

Love Chili but don't want to be stuck standing over a stove? Crock Pot Chili is your answer! Here is a easy recipe for delicious chili! Enjoy!

Chili is one of my husband's favorites. It also helps that my kids love it, too. I was always intimidated by the thought of making chili - my dad could make some fantastic chili- but he always spent so long in the kitchen cooking it up and I honestly don't have time for that! As a mother and wife that also works full time at a pretty demanding job, time is short and when I do have extra time, I would rather be spending time with my family or catching up on housework. Maybe even taking a nap. And I know I am not the only one out there dealing with this! My family also prefers home-cooked meals - we rarely eat out - and this recipe provides a delicious home-made chili for a budget concious family. I hope you enjoy!

You will need a standard large crock pot for this recipe.

Prep time: 5-10 minutes, give yourself a little longer if you use fresh veggies and chop them yourself.


~ 1 pound ground meat of your choice. (I generally use low-fat ground beef) You can also choose soy crumbles in place of meat

~ 1 chili seasoning packet

~ 1 can diced tomatoes

~ 1 bag frozen pepper and onion mix (I usually add 1 cup additional chopped frozen onions - this is based on preference)

~ 2 cans beans thoroughly rinsed (I usually use 1 can black beans and 1 can red beans)

~ 1 T. Chili powder

~ 1 T. Cumin

~ 1 T. garlic powder

~ salt and pepper to taste - I will also add a couple dashes cayenne pepper.

~ 2 beef boullion cubes

~ 1 1/2 to 2 C. water


Place veggies in bottom on crock pot. Sprinkle contents of chili seasoning packet over the veggies. Add the tomatoes, followed by the rinsed beans over the veggies and sprinkle the cumin, chili powder, and garlic, salt, and pepper. Crumble the meat over the seasoned beans. Drop in the bullion cubes and the water. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. Once done, you can eat it up all by itself or serve over rice or even steamed veggies. Enjoy!
