Easy Crockpot Chili

Sabrina, The Scrub Siren
Our gas got shut off three days after moving into our new house! In the middle of the biggest winter storm πŸ₯ΆπŸ˜£ Thankfully, I had everything I needed to make the tastiest chili to warm us up. This is my first try making it πŸ€—, but it was soo good I felt I should share it! My biggest tip - start this as soon as you wake up, and it will be ~perfect~ by supper time!

  • 1 Ninja Foodi NeverStick PossiblePot | I got mine on Amazon β†’


  • 15 oz. Tomato Sauce
  • 8 oz. Water
  • 1 tbsp. Minced Garlic
  • 16 oz. Black Beans
  • 32 oz. Red Kidney Beans
  • 1 Large Yellow Onion
  • 3 lbs. Ground Beef
  • 20 oz. Diced Tomatoes & Green Chillies
  • 1.5 tbsp. Chili Powder
  • 1.5 tbsp. Oregano
  • 1.5 tbsp. Ground Cumin
  • 1.5 tbsp. Onion Powder
  • 1.5 tbsp. Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp. Himalayan Pink Salt


  • Brown your beef and drain all the fat/grease.
  • Mix onion, spices, herbs, and garlic into the beef.
  • Promptly dump all the meat into your slow cooker.
  • Rinse the kidney beans and black beans; toss them into the slow cooker.
  • Add diced tomatoes, water, and green chilies in with all their juices.
  • Stir.
  • Cook on Low for 7 hours while stirring occasionally. Cook on High for 45 minutes. Let rest on Warm for 15 minutes before serving.


Serve with chips or bread. I chose On The Border tortilla chips! Garnish with Cheddar Cheese, Sour Cream, Fresh Diced Onion, Avocado, and/or Jalapenos.
I recommend adding as much or as little water as you want. The less water, the chunkier.

    I made chili for the first time using your recipe – it came out great! My son was really sad the next day when there weren’t any leftovers left, so I’ll need to plan on making it again sometime soon.

    Do you have any new recipes coming out soon? Is there a way to get updates when you add them?
