Mom’s Crockpot Chili

This Crockpot or Slow Cooker Chili is going to change your life. It is so simple to make, smells absolutely amazing all day long as it cooks, and is so easy. You will love this simple Chili recipe.

Although I hated chili growing up, I LOVE this recipe Camille gave me once.
It is so good and perfect for fall and winter.  Every year on Halloween since I can remember, my mom would make this Crockpot Chili. We couldn’t go trick or treating until our entire bowl was gone.
When I was younger, I didn’t always love it (mostly because I was so eager to fill up on candy), but now that I am grown up, it has got to be one of my most favorite dinners.
It is so easy to make and tastes absolutely amazing. It only takes a few minutes to throw together, and you can leave it cooking in your Crockpot or Slow Cooker the rest of the day.

what could i serve with this soup?

I love soup, but I also love the side dishes, and bread that we serve with soup. If you need a few ideas of what to serve this soup with, here is what we recommend:

  • Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread: We love this bread. It is exactly what it says it is, EASY. It is delicious.
  • 30 Minute Dinner Rolls: These rolls are so fast, and practically fail proof. Spread a little butter on them, and get dipping them in your soup.
  • Italian Fresh Green Salad: This fresh Italian salad, makes the perfect side dish and is so simple to throw together.
  • Sweet Cornbread: Nothing warms the soul better than some soup and corn bread. You will love this home style combination and all the amazing flavor.

Really any bread or soup pairing would be perfect for this recipe. It’s simple, delicious, and they both taste great with a hearty soup, such as this one.

what can i add to make my chili more spicy?

My husband is a huge fan of spicy food. Myself, on the other hand, isn’t quite as big as a spicy food fan. This Slow Cooker Chili is so easy to make and tastes absolutely amazing, but my husband prefers a little kick to it.

Here is what we recommend:

  • Add some chopped jalapeño (you could also use canned).
  • Add cumin or cayenne pepper
  • Add red pepper flakes
