Perfect Crock-Pot Chili Recipe


Chili is perfect for game day (and any day really!). This easy recipe will have your guests cheering for more!


  • 2 lbs ground chuck
  • 1 medium size onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can pinto beans (drained)
  • 1 can kidney beans (drained)
  • 1 large can tomato sauce
  • 1 small can diced tomatoes
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 cup chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • ½ bottle of dark beer

The original recipe called for one can of green chili’s, but I replaced them with fresh green onion.


In a crock-pot or a 6-quart Dutch oven, cook ground beef, chopped onion, crushed garlic over medium heat or until meat is lightly browned, and onion is tender.  Use a wooden spoon to break up the meat as it cooks.  Drain off fat.

Transfer meat into the slow cooker.  Add, tomato sauce, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, ½ cup water, crushed red pepper, and spices.

 Slow cook, covered on low heat setting for approximately 6 hours.  Stir occasionally.

Garnish with fresh herbs, grated cheddar cheese, sour cream and enjoy!!!
