5 Ingredient Crock-Pot Chili Recipe

Slowcooker Chili Recipe

Chili is a wonderful and filling easy meal that can be made ahead and tastes great reheated. It is also a meal that can easily be made grain free, bean free, etc. and served to guests who aren’t used to “health food” without anyone even noticing.

5 Ingredient Crock Pot Chili Recipe

This chili recipe is one of my favorites for its simplicity. It has only five ingredients (if you keep homemade chili seasoning on hand) and comes together quickly.

This chili recipe is most easily made in a slow cooker, but it can also be made on the stove more quickly.

We serve crock pot chili with coconut flour biscuits. I add some grated cheese, diced green onions, and garlic to the biscuits to make them savory.

Re-heated, this chili is also good in omelets or on top of eggs. A big pot at the beginning of the week also makes enough for plenty of healthy lunches during the week.

  • Dump raw meat and all other ingredients in Crock-Pot.
  • Cook on low 5-6 hours or high 2-3 hours until meat is done and flavors are blended, or make in 30 minutes on stove.
  • Enjoy 🙂


Forget to defrost the meat? No problem, you can stick it in the Crock-Pot frozen. Just increase the cook time a little.
