Sometimes the best defense against frigid cold weather is eating a big bowl of chili on the couch. In your pajamas. Cozy under blankets. Even better? If you just put all the ingredients right into a slow cooker and make Crock Pot Chili without having to do any cooking. No dishes, no dirty pans, just put everything right in the Crock Pot and press a button. Yes, that’s how I handle winter when you can’t go outside.

What makes this Crock Pot Chili unique is that you don’t have to cook the beef before putting it in the slow cooker. I just put the beef right in the bottom and then the spices right on top and mix it up. Since I’m not browning the meat before I put it in, I’m using spices that will give the meat a nice smoky flavor.

Follow the notes in the recipe for adding beef stock, add more or less based on how much liquid you like in your chili. When the Crock Pot Chili is done cooking, I use a spoon to break up the big pieces of beef and get everything nicely mixed up. I always serve my chili with sour cream, shredded cheese, fresh cilantro and crackers or corn chips. And beer. Yes, there is usually one or two beers served on chili night.

  1. I love to make pulled pork in my slow cooker. I bought my crock pot about 20 years ago second hand from someone so I need a new one bad.

  2. I like to do cheap roasts for making pulled pork or shredded beef. Right now I’ve got boneless ribs cooking all day. Enjoyed reading what others use theirs for.
