Slow cooker on, family happy. It's a beautiful thing! Our Slow-Cooker Family-Favorite Chili is everything you could want in a meal. Delicious? Of course! Enough for eight people? Check! Easy? Oh, yeah. We're talking set-it-and-forget-it, easy. Our slow-cooker family chili is amazing on its own but elevated with the fresh and flavorful go-to chili toppings you know and love, it's irresistible. We're adding every topping under the sun to our bowl (or should we say bowls) of Slow-Cooker Family-Favorite Chili. That's just how we roll!

Ingredients

  • 2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (28 oz) Muir Glen™ organic diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (16 oz) chili beans in sauce, undrained
  • 1 can (15 oz) Muir Glen™ organic tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain.
  • 2
    In 4- to 5-quart slow cooker, mix beef mixture and remaining ingredients.
  • 3
    Cover and cook on Low heat setting 6 to 8 hours.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Have a larger slow cooker? Double this up for a crowd and set out dishes of shredded pepper Jack cheese, broken yellow & blue corn tortilla chips and a big bowl of pico de gallo (a quick, fresh salsa of tomato, white onion, fresh jalapeno, cilantro leaves and lime juice) to spoon into each bowl.
  • tip 2
    Switch up the ground beef with some ground pork, chicken or turkey in this Slow-Cooker Family-Favorite Chili.
  • tip 3
    Not all chili powders are equal—the most basic consistent blend is made up of ground mild red chiles, garlic, oregano and cumin. But if you’re more adventurous, look for a smoky chipotle chili blend that has more kick, or stir in a pinch of ground cinnamon or allspice for a newer, more modern edge.
