Slow-Cooker Crockpot Chili

This Guilt-Free Crockpot Chili Recipe is the perfect slow-cooker chili. It is a thick, spicy, no bean Texas chili with no corn flour. It’s perfect for Keto and Paleo dieters or anyone looking for a hearty, healthy meal with little effort. This chili is great for lazy afternoons.


Even though there are quite a few ingredients in this chili, it’s super easy to make. Just measure, dump and wait. The hardest part is browning the ground beef.

Here’s what you’ll need:

New Mexico Peppers

These dried peppers are not very spicy, but they add a sweet smoky, flavor. I cut mine up into small pieces with my kitchen scissors before adding them.

Chili De Arbol

These dried peppers bring the heat. Add as many or as few as you want for spice in your chili.

Tabasco and Jalapeño

Any peppers will be great for add-ins and extra spice. Jalapenos are usually very common, and tabasco peppers really pack the heat for their small size.

This recipe is so easy. The hardest part is measuring the ingredients. Once you dump them, just stir occasionally and wait. The chili will turn out great in 6 hours.
