Slow Cooker Crock Pot Chili Recipe

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds ground round beef
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup beef stock
  • 1 can tomatoes (28 ounces, drained & mashed)
  • 3 cans kidney beans (drained)

Recipe Instructions:

You're probably wondering why I chose ground round over ground beef. If this is the case, the reason I chose ground round is because it's leaner and contains less fat. That being said, if you prefer, you can easily substitute ground beef, chuck or sirloin in this recipe.

  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground round. Once browned, drain the fat from the meat and return to skillet. Add onions & Galilean and continue to cook and stir over medium heat until onions are transparent.
  2. Next transfer meat mixture to a lightly greased crock pot. Add the remaining ingredients consisting of chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, salt, cayenne pepper, beef stock, tomatoes and kidney beans. Mix all ingredients well with the meat mixture.
  3. Cover your crock pot with a lid, setting the temperature to low and cook for 5 to 7 hours.
