This super easy slow cooker chili is fantastic any night of the week, and the leftovers are perfect on so many things...omelettes, baked potatoes, chili fries (yumm!!)



  • 1 serving homemade chili seasoning mix (see recipe)
  • 1 lb ground beef (browned and drained of fat, we prefer 93% lean ground beef)
  • 16 oz can tomato sauce (plus a can full of water)
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes (diced, stewed, or crushed work too)
  • 15.25 oz can black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 2 15.25 oz cans dark red kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 2 15.25 oz cans pinto beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 white onion (chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp garlic (minced, 2-3 large cloves)


  1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium high heat, then drain off the excess fat and transfer to your slow cooker.

  2. Add the chili seasoning mix and add remaining ingredients: tomato sauce (and full can of water), tomato paste, diced tomatoes, black beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, onion, and garlic.

  3. Stir to combine, then cook on low for 8 hours.
