There is that time of year each fall where chili seems a distant memory and I get so excited about making it! And I love a good slow cooker recipe. I have tried several chili’s and this one has always been a tried and true good choice.


1 large onion, peeled and diced

1 can (15 oz) kidney beans, drained

1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, drained

3 bell peppers, seeded and diced (I prefer yellow, red and orange over green but any will do)

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced

4 stalks celery, diced

1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes

2 carrots, diced

1 1/2 Tbsp chili powder

2 tsp ground cumin

1 1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp dried oregano

Cheddar Cheese, chives, avocado (optional)


1. Combine all ingredients in a crockpot.

2. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8-10 hours.

3. Serve in individual bowls, topping with cheese, chives or avocado.

Serving Suggestion: Serve over sweet potatoes or with corn bread.
