Slow Cooker Chili

  • Cooking Time:

    5-7 Hours
  • Servings:



2 lbs. ground turkey or ground beef
2 - 16 oz. cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 - 14 1/2 oz. cans diced tomatoes, undrained
8 oz. can tomato sauce

1 green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. chili powder
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. ground cumin
2 tsp. salt

Chili is one of those dishes that tastes better the longer it simmers – perfect for a slow cooker!

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Place ground turkey or beef in the skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook meat until browned.
  3. Drain meat in a colander or on a paper towel. Transfer to slow cooker.
  4. Stir in remaining ingredients EXCEPT cheese.
  5. Cover. Cook on Low for 7 hours, or on High 5 hours.

Garnish individual servings with cheese.

Would you recommend this recipe for a freezer meal? I’d like to make this to toss in the freezer for a quick (slow!) meal on busy activity nights. =)
