The thing that is so great about this chili recipe is that you make it in the morning, and it cooks ALL day in your oven. You open the oven at 6 pm and it’s done!
I’ve shared this Chili recipe on my blog before. In the days before “styled” food photos. When you could get away with a picture snapped from your phone. (or maybe you couldn’t get away with it, I just did it anyway).
The other day I was making this Chili recipe, it’s our families favorite and one of my “go to” dinners during the fall and winter. We probably have it 3 times a month. I decided it was worth a second mention. It’s hard to find a recipe that works it’s way into your families routine, and this one has, and for that reason, I’m sharing it again with you. In hopes that it makes your life a bit easier this winter.

Yummy brown caramelized bits of meat and beans. It’s delish and easy. I’ve never tried it in a crockpot mostly because you can make it all in one pot (including browning the beef) and never saw a reason to dirty another pot.
We serve it a few ways:
-over spaghetti (the only way my girls will eat it)
-over baked potatoes
-with Fritos and cheese – my personal favorite
Mary Ann’s Slow Cook All Day Chili Recipe:
A delicious chili recipe that slow cooks in your oven all day. It's a great make-ahead dinner idea.
- 2 Onions
- 1 T Oil
- 4 lb Hamburger Meat
- 1 t Garlic Salt
- 1 t Pepper
- 3 cans Kidney Beans drained
- 18 oz Ketchup
- 2 T Apple Cider Vinegar
- 4 T Chili Powder
- 1 16 oz Can Tomato Juice
- 1 lb Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- 1 bag Fritos
- 12 oz Spaghetti cooked
In a large cast iron pot brown
2 large onions, in 1 T butter or oil
add 4 lb hamburger, garlic salt and pepper (you can use 2lb Ground Turkey & 2lb Ground Beef if you like, it tastes the same and cuts down on the fat), cook, until browned.
3 cans kidney beans
18oz of ketchup
3-4 T chili powder
1 large can of tomato juice
stir and remove from heat
cook covered in an oven-safe pot for 5 hours at 275.
Check the pot every 1-2 hrs. If it seems like it's getting too dry add more tomato juice, chicken broth or water. You don't want it to dry out.
