Crock-Pot Chili Shopping Tips

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Crock-Pot Chili Cooking Tips

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.

Slow-Cooker Beef Chili

It's perfect&mdashespecially when topped with cheese and FRITOS.

Our Classic Beef Chili is already quick enough to make on a weeknight, but this slow-cooker recipe is even easier. Sautéing the beef and onion will definitely lead to more flavor. But if you want to just throw everything into the slow cooker at once, it'd be totally fine.

What kind of beef should I use?

While we prefer 80% (because fat=flavor) anything up to 90% lean will work.

Can I swap in chopped tomatoes for the crushed?

Absolutely! It'll taste the same, but you'll have more texture from chopped tomatoes.

What kind of spices should I use?

Tbh, anything your heart desires. We like a combo of chili powder, cumin, dried oregano, and paprika, but you can switch it up according to taste. F

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes&mdashDO IT! This makes great leftovers throughout the week. Properly stored in an airtight container, the chili will last 4 to 5 days.

Best toppings?

In no particular order: Fritos (or your favorite chip), cheese, sour cream, green onions (or chives), bacon (😈), and jalapeños, preferably pickled. Did we miss any?

Crock Pot Chili

I love my chili because it’s saucy, hearty and full of flavor. Perfect to eat with a cheese bun! If we don’t eat it all, I’ll freeze what’s left in a container or even a Ziploc bag.

  • 1 whole Onion, Chopped
  • 1 can (796 Ml Or 28 Fl. Oz. Can) Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 can Heinz Deep Browned Beans With Pork & Tomato Sauce (398 Ml / 14 Fl Oz)
  • 1 can (540 Ml Or 19 Fl. Oz. Can) Red Kidney Beans
  • 1 can ((284 Ml Or 10 Fl Oz. Can) Sliced Mushrooms
  • ½ cups Ketchup
  • 3 Tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

I was looking for a super easy recipe that wouldn’t take too long. I decided this one was perfect. I forgot the mushrooms and bought regular pork and beans as I couldn’t find the ones indicated. This was excellent!! I opted not to drain the meat, used a 90/10 ground beef and the chili was the perfect consistency. Would definitely make this again!

Eat it up!

I really like chili straight with nothing added to it, but this chili also goes really well with a scoop of plain yogurt. I prefer to use yogurt over sour cream just because in my mind it tastes better in chili. Toss in a side of cornbread, add some shredded cheese if you like and I guarantee you'll make this chili concoction a bunch! This is a super simple chili recipe. As I stated earlier, I don't like to complicate things and I'm not exactly sure how long everything took to get ready, but I will say it was roughly a 2.5 beer recipe based on the cans of beer I enjoyed while making this late at night. Enjoy!
