Slow Cooker Chili Con Carne

  • Cooking Time:

    8-10 hours on Low or 4-5 hours on High
  • Servings:



1 lbs. dried red kidney beans (about 2 cups, dried)
4 lbs. ground beef
2 large onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves
5 T. chili powder
3 bouillon cubes, beef, crushed
2 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 - 26 oz. cartons of beef stock
56 oz. crushed tomatoes
6 oz. tomato paste

This recipe for Slow Cooker Chili Con Carne is GREAT FOR A CROWD and a meaty alternative for someone who doesn’t care for traditional chili.  It’s still packed with flavor yet replaces the chili seasoning with a meaty/beefy flavor.  This is my favorite version – simple and delicious. I often use leftovers to make a beef & cheese dip after a few days. Enjoy!

  1. Soak Red Kidney Beans over night, rinse and clean.
  2. Heat skillet and brown ground beef, discard fat.
  3. Place a slow cooker liner in a large slow cooker.
  4. Combine all the ingredients in the liner, stirring well.
  5. Cover & Crock on LOW 8 hours.

Optional: This recipe can be halved very easily for a smaller crowd! Enjoy!

Happy Crocking!

Are the kidney beans dried or canned?

How is this different from regular chili, which also has ground beef in it?

I’m going to try the Chili Con Carne and the Chili Mac. I love all the Get Crocked posts. Love the different kinds of food. Some I would never have thought to cook in my crock pot !!!

Can the boullion cubes be omitted and perhaps use more beef stock? I do not like to use processed food like boullion cubes if I can help it.
