crock pot chili

Fall is here and the temperatures are dropping across the country.  Here in Texas, we take advantage of those colder nights with a bowl of warm crock pot chili!  This is an adapted version of my mother-in-law's chili recipe.  I'm not usually one who likes chili, but this is good stuff.  Even the Captain likes it!  The best part….you can make a big batch and freeze part of it, eat some now, and refrigerate some for leftovers.  You can also prepare the chili on the stove for a quick meal, just add the ingredients below and cook on medium-high for about 20-30 minutes and serve.


  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • 2 cans of Ranch Style Beans
  • 1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • cayenne pepper, to taste (optional) 
  • chili powder, to taste (optional)


  1. Brown ground beef, then drain.
  2. Add cooked ground beef and other ingredients to crock pot.
  3. Cook on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4-5.  
  4. Serve with cornbread, shredded cheese, sour cream, or anything else you want!
