Whether you’re looking for a set-it-and-forget-it weeknight meal or something that’s full of rich, slow-cooked flavor, crockpot recipes always come in handy. And, as the weather gets colder a good crockpot chili recipe is a must-have.
There are a number of delicious crockpot chili recipes, but we like this one because it’s so easy to make. This chili recipe takes advantage of premade picante sauce and dried spices and seasonings to drastically reduce the amount of time you’ll need to spend chopping vegetables and prepping ingredients. After you cook the ground beef and mince some garlic (which you can also do using a garlic press) you simply add all the ingredients to your crock pot and let the chili simmer away for 3 to 4 hours. Because this crockpot chili recipe cooks slowly, it has time to develop the rich and complex flavor that good chili recipes are known for.
