Crock Pot Chili

September 29, 2021

It was one of those crazy days. I knew that I was going to be out all day and we had another busy night of sports, with everyone eating dinner at different times. It is a perfect night for Crock Pot Chili!

When I cook ground beef, I always cook several pounds at one time. Then I freeze the cooked ground beef in 1 pound ziploc bags. Doing this makes throwing together dinner in the crock pot a breeze. It is a perfect crisp fall day here. So I loaded up my crock pot with all of the ingredients for chili and put the frozen, cooked ground beef on top to make the easiest dinner ever! Chili is a perfect dinner for a fall night like this!

Slow Cooker Chili


1 lb cooked ground beef (I used cooked and frozen ground beef from my freezer)

1/2 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes 15.5 oz. can kidney beans (do not drain or rinse)

1 to 1 1/2 tsp of kosher salt

3/4 tsp pepper

1 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp cumin


Cheddar cheese, shredded

Sour cream

Optional: diced green onions and cilantro

  1. Add the diced tomatoes, kidney beans, onions and garlic to your slow cooker.

  2. Add the salt, pepper, chili powder, paprika and cumin to the tomatoes and beans and stir.

  3. Place the frozen, cooked ground beef on top and place the lid on the slow cooker.

  4. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

  5. Take the lid off and break up the ground beef.

  6. Stir to combine it well and serve with all of your favorite chili toppings.

My frozen, cooked ground beef. Such a time saver!

Add your spices to the diced tomatoes, beans, garlic and onions...

And stir...

Add your cooked ground beef...

After cooking all day, your house will smell amazing and dinner is ready!

I am so glad that I was able to throw this easy dinner into the slow cooker this morning and have it cook itself all day! It is a perfect dinner for this busy fall day! We love to serve our chili on a bed of Fritos. What do you eat with your chili?
