Best Crockpot Chili Recipe

Easy as in throw the ingredients in the crockpot and push a button. For years, our website has featured a popular chili recipe, but I never considered making it a slow cooker dinner chili.

Step 1

Place meat in crockpot, add seasonings, and add liquids. High for 4 hours, medium for 6 or low for 8.
