Beef, Slow Cooker

Slow Cooker 5 Pepper Chili

Living in the Pacific Northwest, Fall has become one of our favorite seasons – cooler weather, fall vibrant colors, relaxing in front of the fireplace, football, having hearty food. To help keep us warm this weekend, I made spicy chili using my slow cooker. Since we love adding spice to our food, I added 5 different peppers to this recipe and it came out with a good kick. This is a hearty chili with good flavors that we had it served with cornbread and some Fritos Scoops. Both are optional ways of serving your chili with.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW

Servings: 8



  1. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Brown minced garlic then add in ground beef. Cook and brown meat for about 7-8 minutes. Drain

  2. Optional. If you are not a fan if chunky tomatoes and/or the seeds do this: In a blender, puree diced tomatoes for 10 seconds.

  3. Add ground beef to crock pot. Mix in the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on HIGH (4 hours) or LOW (8 hours).

  4. Top with sharp cheddar, sour cream and green onions. Serve with a side of cornbread or with Fritos Scroops.

  1. This sounds a lot like the chili we make at my house without the peppers because too many of my family members don’t like spicy things. But I definitely like the idea of making it in the crockpot thats so much easier than a pot on the stove!

    1. I got the idea from Josh’s aunt that we went to visit one year. It is so easy to do and packs lots of flavor. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    1. Hopefully he will make it for you. It’s easy to put together and then let it cook on it’s own. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
