Typically I prepare this the evening before we eat it so that it has all day the next day to cook on low and it is ready when I get home.

Ingredients for meaty crockpot chili:

  • 1 large steak cut into small pieces
  • 2 cans black beans drained
  • 1 can pinto beans drained
  • 1 can corn drained
  • 1 4 oz can green chiles drained
  • 3 medium tomatoes chopped or 1 can tomatoes
  • 1 small yellow onion chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper chopped
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp ketchup
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 12 oz bottle of beer

Serve with:

  • Sour cream
  • Shredded Mexican cheese mix
  • Tortilla chips

Mix all of the main ingredients in a crockpot and cover and keep in fridge  overnight. In the morning place the chili in the crockpot on low and let cook (usually 8-9+ hours while I am at work). Add salt to taste.

Add a dollop of sour cream, some shredded cheese and serve the crockpot chili with tortilla chips.

Serves 6..
