Crockpot Chili Recipe Ingredients

For this chili, you will need

  • Ground Beef: I like to use lean, organic grass-fed beef, but any ground beef will work just fine.
  •  Yellow onion, diced
  • Dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • Light red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • Tomato sauce – canned
  • Salsa – Your choice of mild, medium, or hot, fresh or jarred.
  • Garlic salt
  • Mild chili seasoning. I sometimes make my own chili seasoning in the past, but the packets work well too.

How to Make Crockpot Chili

  1. Brown the ground beef and onion until cooked through. Drain any excess grease.
  2. Pour the beef and onion mixture into your Crockpot.  
  3. Then just add remaining ingredients.
  4. Now, let the Crockpot do the work. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  5. 30 minutes before you serve, take the lid off of the crockpot to allow the chili to thicken up.

Can you make this chili on the stovetop?

Yes, you can! Make this chili in an aluminum or stainless steel pot on your stovetop. Brown the ground beef and onion in your pot until cooked through. Drain any excess grease.
Then just add remaining ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring consistently to be sure it does not burn. Then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer on low for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. For the last 20-30 minutes, simmer uncovered. This will help to reduce the liquid and encourage the chili to thicken.

  • Add some veggies! Carrots, pepper, or corn make great additions to this chili
