Slow Cooker Chili

Most of my friends make there chili in the crockpot, so when a few of my friends heard that I’ve never made it in the crockpot and only on the stove they were all shocked! After that discussion I decided to look for a crock pot recipe so I could give it a try the way they do. Although, I’m not a huge fan of chili my husband is and with that being said he was more than happy with this recipe. 

Prep: 15 minutes

Cook: 6 hours

Serves: 8


  • 1 Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner {best way to not have to clean up a huge mess}
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cans (15oz.) red kidney beans, undrained
  • 2 packages chili seasoning mix
  • 1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (10 oz.) diced tomatoes and green chiles 
  • Cheese, green onions, and sour cream for topping


1. Place a slow cooker liner snuggly in the crock pot bowl, and pull the top of the liner over the rim of the bowl. 

2. Brown ground beef, bell pepper, and onion over medium-high heat in skillet, drain well. Add beef mixture into slow cooker (liner). Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl then add to beef; gently stir. Place lid on slow cooker, cooking on low for 6 to 7 hours or high for 3 to 3-1/2 hours until heated through. Serve immediately and top with cheese, sour cream, and green onions if desired.

    I love slow cooker chili-the beef gets so tender and the flavors mix well.

    I've never made chili in the crockpot either! But, I'm convinced my slow cooker is out to ruin me so that may have something to do with it 🙂 I bet the flavor combo is great in this – thanks for linking up!
