This Slow Cooker Chilli really is a one pot wonder! Super easy to throw together in the morning and have it ready for dinner time.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
Despite popular belief this hearty, all-time classic did not actually originate from Mexico. The exact origins are unknown and as with the Minestrone Soup recipe I posted a few weeks ago, there are many different variations and recipes out there.
This is the recipe I’ve used for as long as I can remember, and the way I make it hasn’t changed in all those years.
Well, maybe just the omission of oil and addition of Low calorie cooking spray. The substitution of regular mince with below 5% fat mince and the addition of a pile of speed foods, but that’s it!
This can be done in the slow cooker, in a pan on the stove or in the oven the choice is yours. I prefer to just chuck it in and leave it to do it’s thing for a few hours so I like to use the slow cooker.

Speaking of slow cookers, we use an Instant Pot, which is like a slow cooker/pressure cooker hybrid.
If you’re like me you’ll remember the slow cookers of old that would splutter and rock, and make all sorts of scary noises! None of that with the Instant Pot – just set the time, close the lid and go. It even keeps your food warm once it’s finished cooking?!
