"This spicy and satisfying chili is made in the slow cooker. Start it before you head off to work, and return to a homemade meal ready to eat! I like to put two scoops of sour cream in with my bowl."

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in ground beef. Cook and stir until beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  2. Combine ground beef, kidney beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, onions, bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low for 10 hours, or High for 4 hours.
  3. Garnish each serving with Cheddar cheese.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you want to kick it up a notch with the fire factor add more cayenne pepper about 2 hours into cooking, then again after 3 hours of cooking.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

This was a great recipe!! The only thing I changed, was adding 1 extra can of tomato sauce. I decided to do this because it was very solid. The extra sauce made it the best chili I've had!

Made this today for a group of friends and my boyfriend for Sunday Night Football - everyone loved it. Very hearty and flavorful, juicy but not too thin at all. I was a little worried about it b...

Easy and delicious! VERY spicy, with the tablespoon of Cayenne pepper! But I'm in Arizona, so it fit right in. :) The only change I made was to add a little oregano and cumin, just because. It s...
