This is an easy chili recipe that my husband and I have both fixed frequently throughout our married life.  The photo above is of the Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili; however, the Slow Cooker Chili is the base and it should come out looking the same way.

Slow Cooker Chili

Yield: 6


  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 2 16oz Cans of Bush’s Chili Beans (Be sure to use Gluten Free Chili Beans, if needed.)
  • 1 14.5oz Can of Beef Broth
  • 1 10oz Can of Rotel or Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 Tsp Minced Onion
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 Cup of Ketchup
  • Optional Toppings:
  • 1/2 Cup Colby Jack Cheese
  • Fritos or Cornbread


  1. Cook the ground beef in a skillet. In this case, I used precooked ground beef that I had in the freezer.
  2. Then, add all ingredients in the slow cooker except for the optional toppings. This should cook on low for 4 hours. When it’s finished top with a little bit of cheese and serve with cornbread or Fritos.
  3. Note: It can be left in the slow cooker up to 8 hours, but will be done after 4.
  4. Gluten Free Note: I use Bush's Chili Beans but as always be sure to check the ingredients to be sure the chili beans you use do not contain gluten.
  5. Makes approximately 6 servings.


I also fixed homemade cornbread to go with this chili.  It’s delicious with Frito’s or baked potatoes as well.
Perfect for a fall day!  Remember your coupons!

    I have always LOVED my moms chili. I would beg her at least once a week to make it. I thought I would try this just to change it up… BIG MISTAKE!! Why? Because this was SOOOO GOOD I cannot eat my moms anymore. It is so bland…

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
