  1. Place beans in a large pot and cover with 7 cups water; bring to a boil. Cook beans for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover pot, and simmer until beans are tender, about 1 1/2 hours; drain.
  2. Mix beans, 1 cup water, beef roast, barbeque sauce, chipotle peppers, cilantro, cooking wine, garlic, chili powder, cumin, beef bouillon powder, red pepper flakes, and liquid smoke together in a slow cooker.
  3. Cook on High until meat shreds easily when chili is stirred, 5 to 7 hours (or cook on Low for 12 hours). Stir chili to distribute meat before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Stir 1/8 teaspoon baking soda into water when boiling beans if you are using hard water.
  • Partner Tip
  • Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
