Slow-Cooker Chili

7 comments Permalink

This recipe is a family favorite and one of the recipes included in my new upcoming eBook (“Simply Scrumptious Slow-Cooker Recipes”). I usually serve this with cornbread and sometimes over rice.

Recipe: Slow-Cooker Chili


  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 can chili beans (undrained)
  • 1 can pinto beans (undrained)
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes (with juice)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon each thyme and salt
  • ½ teaspoon each cumin and oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon each dry mustard and black pepper


  1. Sauté ground beef, onion and green pepper in skillet until meat is browned. Drain off grease.
  2. Pour meat into slow-cooker and add remaining ingredients.
  3. Stir well to combine.
  4. Cover. Cook on low 8 hours.
  5. Stir before serving over rice or with cornbread.

Quick Notes:

  • Add your favorite toppings such as sour cream, cheddar cheese or chopped green onion over each bowl of cooked chili.

    Yum. So glad to see somebody else puts celery in chili. I also put a jalapeno pepper in mine.
