Easy Crock Pot Chili Recipe

Today for Souper Monday we are talking chili. You may have noticed that my family loves chili and I have quite a few versions on my site, but this recipe today is one of my favorites.

I have been making this chili for close to fifteen years and it is the chili I make the most. This recipe came from a Taste of Home magazine from the the 1990’s. I still love and use so many of those old Taste Of Home recipes and this is one of my favorites.

I actually shared this chili recipe several years ago, but it was buried in a menu planning post, and was hard to find on my site. So, I decided it was time that this chili got a post of its own.

One of the reasons that I love chili so much is because it is so versatile. You can easily double a batch of chili and freeze the extra for serving later on. In fact, this recipe makes enough for about 12 servings, so for most families this recipe will give you plenty to freeze or use later in the week.

And when serving chili leftover think of other ways to serve it. Things like Frito Pie, over baked potatoes, or frozen in small containers for lunches are all ways I use leftover chili.

What is your favorite way to serve leftover chili?

  1. AH! This is my chili recipe too!!
    We *love* it and get asked for the recipe all the time. Enjoy your Souper Monday!

  2. We have been struggling to find a chili recipe that we like. I can not wait to try this out!! Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. I made this yesterday for our family. The flavor was great but I made the mistake of putting the full 2 teaspoons of salt in. I like salt but this was too salty for me. 🙁 I would definitely make this again but with only 1 teaspoon of salt.

  4. Looks GREAT!! I’m always looking for crock pot recipes 🙂 Thanks!

  5. I think I may have posted this before on a similar recipe, but you can really thicken up chili by stirring in a can of refried beans about a half hour before serving. Adds some protein and the chili seems to have been simmering longer than it really has! Love your recipes and your comments. You seem to be a genuinely lovely person. Thanks!

  6. Tried this chili and it was fantastic!

    Was easy to make and is one of those recipes you can tweak and add to so that it fits everyone’s taste. I will definitely be making this again.

    Thank you for the share!

  7. I add a lil brown sugar and some bacon bits too for flavor
