  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Stir tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, onion, jalapeno peppers, chili powder, cayenne, salt, garlic, and black pepper together in the crock of a slow cooker; add ground beef and stir.
  3. Cook on High for 6 1/2 hours (or on Low for 10 hours).


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you don't like jalapenos, you could opt for 1 green bell pepper instead. If you like it hotter opt for habanero peppers.
  • As with most chili, it would go great with shredded Cheddar cheese and bread.
  • Partner Tip
  • Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

Really good; probably my go-to beanless chili.

I followed the recipe but used one jalapeno and one green pepper. Made it 3 times in the past two months. It's a keeper for our family!

It's still cooking, but I'm counting down the hrs.. I took a sneak bite n it's awesome! Love the spicy kick ... I did however add an extra can of diced tomatoes n added sausage

This recipe was very good but wasn't hot enough I had to add 3 ghost peppers to bring on the heat and that made it perfect

I do this on top of the stove, sautéing the onion until translucent then adding the hamburger. When that has browned, I drain off the excess fat. Also, I use Del Monte Zesty Chili Style Diced ...
