The best chili is a combination of ground beef, the best seasoning, tomatoes and time.  So to make a bad ass chili that will set your pants on fire you need just a limited number of recipes.

In the slow cooker the meat will get all the time it needs to absorb the flavors of the tomatoes and the seasoning.

Ideally you make this recipe one day in advance and leave it in the fridge over night. The taste will be even better. All you need to do is heat the chili slowly either in a pan or the slow cooker again.

It is important when you make a chili to brown the ground beef first. Even though the meat is in the slow cooker for a long time you do not want to risk that your meat is not done.

With an Instant Pot or Crockpot Express you can use the brown/sauté option. If you have a regular slow cooker brown your meat in a skillet with the vegetables before you transfer them to the slow cooker.

If you make such a delicious recipe you have to make your own homemade seasoning. It is so easy to make your own chili powder and taco seasoning there is no need to use a store bought packet.

Even if you do not own a slow cooker you can still make this slow cooked recipe. Use a Dutch oven follow the recipe and put it in the oven at 300℉/150℃ for at least 4 hours.

How to make Crockpot chili

To start this Crockpot chili recipe you first need to cut and finely chop the onion, garlic and bell pepper.

Turn your Crockpot express on and set it to Brown/Sauté. If you have a regular slow cooker use a skillet and heat.

Brown the ground beef first. You will not need any butter or oil. The beef has a lot of natural fat it that will be released when you brown it.

Then add the onion, bell pepper and garlic to the meat. If you like your chili spicy also add the jalapeño pepper. Sauté until soft and translucent. This will take a couple of minutes.

Add the chili powder and taco seasoning. Stir through the ground beef meat mixture. Then add the plum tomatoes and break them up while stirring. Add the tomato puree to the pan.

If you like your chili spicy make sure you add some jalapeño pepper finely chopped. The last ingredient you need to add are the kidney beans or brown beans. Give it one more stir before closing the lid.

Set your slow cooker to either:

  • 6-8 hours on Low
  • 4-5 hours on High

Leave your slow cooker to do the work. Resist the urge to open the Crockpot while cooking. Leave it and only stir the chili at the end of the cooking time. Else you might crush the beans. Serve and enjoy your Crockpot chili recipe.

Eat beef chili with

You have a number of great side dishes options that you can serve your slow cooker chili with:

  • Tortilla chips – tortilla chips is a great side dish to eat with your beef chili. Make them yourself and it will taste even better
  • Arepas – another great side dish to eat with a bowl of chili. Dip these arepas in the chili, pure heaven
  • Corn tacos – you can eat your chili as taco filling all you need are some corn tacos that you can make as well
  • Soft flatbread – take some flatbread and dip it in your chili, so yum!
  • Basmati rice – rice is always a good idea and with chili it is even better. When your chili is to hot you can extinguish the heat with the rice. Basmati is an aromatic rice and one of my favorite
  • Sour cream -sour cream works really well with chili
  • Cheese – because who can live with out cheese? If you can’t sprinkle a generous amount of your favorite cheese on the chili
