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

2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pep­per
2 — 26 oz. car­tons of beef stock
56 oz. crushed toma­toes

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!

[…] Crock Pot Chili Con Carne […]


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.


Is this recipe spicey?
