For those busy nights here is a perfect "set it" and "forget it" meal that can be prepped and left alone until serving time.

Prep Time

10 minutes

Cook Time

4 hrs 15 minutes





  • 2 lbs Ground Beef
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable or olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced, or more to taste
  • 2 (16 ounce) cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (28 ounce) can tomato puree
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers
  • 2 tablespoons mild chili powder
  • Salt

Secondary Ingredients

  • For more flavor add beef broth.
  • You may also add more tomato paste or puree.
  • Toppings when serving: shredded cheese, sour cream, or chopped green onions



  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add ground beef; cook and stir until browned, 8 to 10 minutes.

  2. Transfer beef mixture to a 6-quart slow cooker. Stir in kidney beans, diced tomatoes, tomato puree, water, green chile peppers, chili powder, salt, cumin, and black pepper.

  3. Cook on Low until flavors combine, 4 to 6 hours.

    The best way to thicken any chili is to allow it to cook for longer. If you follow this recipe and allow the chili to cook for 4-6 hours on Low, you should be left with perfectly thickened chili.

    However, if the chili is too thin for you, add a cornstarch slurry to thicken it quickly.
