The Best Slow Cooker Beef and Bean Chili Recipe

Chili Hero

by Morgan Peaceman | Nomaste Hungry

“The minute the cooler temperatures begin to make their way through my area, it’s slow cooker season. Let’s celebrate the change in weather with the best slow-cooker beef and bean chili recipe you’ll ever make. Making homemade chili is about taking things slow, letting the ingredients marinate together on a low flame, and not overcomplicating anything.

Chili is great all year long, but there’s something about it when it’s made during the “ber” months, with the trees slowly swaying, cuddled up on the couch with a cozy blanket.” – Morgan Peaceman

The Best Slow Cooker Beef and Bean Chili Recipe 

Prep Time: 10 min

Total Time: 5 hr 10 min

US Wellness Meats Shopping List: Ground Beef

Servings: 8 people

Chili ground beef


  • 1 lb Ground beef
  • 1 15oz Can tomato sauce
  • ½ Can cannellini beans
  • ½ Can black beans
  • ½ Can diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tsp garlic powder divided
  • 2 Tsp chili powder divided
  • 1 Tsp cumin
  • 1 Tsp paprika
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. In a large frying pan, add the ground beef and begin to brown on a medium flame. Cook until the meat is 90% of the way cooked, as it will continue to cook as it is in the slow cooker.
  2. Season the meat with paprika, salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, and garlic powder. Then, set aside.
  3. In the slow cooker, pour in the ground beef and layer in the other ingredients like diced tomatoes, cannellini beans, and black beans.
  4. Pour in the can of tomato sauce, then add in another layer of salt, pepper, and chili powder.
  5. Close the lid to the slow cooker and cook on a low setting for up to 5 hours. Stir occasionally.

Nothing is better than a warm cup of chili on a cool Mid-Western evening. Mix this recipe up by trying another percentage of Ground Beef or even Ground Bison, Lamb, or Elk.
