Use your slow cooker to make mealtime come together fast. You can brown the meat first (in a large skillet over medium-high heat), or combine the raw meat with the other ingredients and let the slow cooker do all the work.
This recipe is excerpted from Robin to the Rescue.
Make Ahead Tips
You can save even more time by combining all the ingredients in the slow cooker insert up to 2 days ahead and storing it in the refrigerator.
I really liked this. I precooked the ground beef. I didn't have the Mexican stewed tomatoes, so I used can of Rotel (10 oz) plus some tomato sauce & a chopped jalapeno. I only used the black beans.
a very nice recipe I'll do again.
Funny thing, I have used slow cookers for about 20 years and never have I ever made a chili in one. Today, I used this recipe and threw in 2 small diced onions, 1 diced green pepper and a 1/2 of chopped frozen jalapeno. I also increased the chili pepper and used ancho chili pepper. This was super easy to make. Will definitely make again!
I doubled this recipe for a party. It was very successful, but I made a few changes: I used 2/3 beef and 1/3 pork. I couldn't imagine chili without onions, so I cut one up and threw it in. The spices were good but I wanted more so added a chipotle in adobo sauce, plus a spoonful of extra adobo sauce. After a couple of hours of cooking it seemed dry so I added another can of diced tomatoes. Overall, with those changes, a great result.
