Crockpot Beef Chili
Ready for a cold weather classic? In the crockpot?! Crockpot Beef Chili is your classic chili with ground beef, slow cooked to perfection in the crockpot. There are so many ways to make chili, and I'd categorize this Crockpot Beef Chili recipe as traditional Midwestern.
For the chili powder in the Crockpot Beef Chili recipe, I always start with 2 tablespoons, but slow cooking has a tendency to suck some of the flavors out and meld them together really well. So if you find your chili isn't chili-y enough, add an additional tablespoon at the end when you're taste testing.
