G’day, happy Friday and a little recipe for the weekend, this is a one-bowl easy crockpot friendly chilli recipe.

This recipe came to be as an amalgamation of my regular beef chilli recipe and the vegetarian chilli recipe I have (find that here).  I make the vegetarian chilli often in the week, it’s easy and it’s got lots of good stuff in it, however it doesn’t cut the mustard when there is a need for meat.

So I made this one weekend when I was going to be out all day and wanted something in the slow cooker and wanted to get home, after a long day of sport spectating, to something that was all done and dusted, no rice to cook, no bread to slice, no salad to wash – I threw this lot in the slow cooker and we came into exactly that.

Since then, and as the weather has cooled down a bit, we’ve had it on quite a few Sundays, an alternative to the Sunday Roast and ladled into bowls while sitting around the chiminea in the early evening on the deck.

Easy Crockpot Slow Cooker friendly One Bowl Chilli Recipe


4 400g cans beans drained and rinsed (any combo will do my fave is 2 black beans, 1 kidney beans, 1 chickpeas)

2 medium onions finely sliced

3 large cloves garlic

3 tbsp soy sauce

3 cups beef stock  (adjust this depending on how long you are cooking it for)

1/2 kg mince beef

1 red chilli deseeded and finely sliced

2 tbsp vinegar

generous salt & pepper

2 cans tomatoes

1 red pepper (capsicum) chopped

spring onions, sour cream and grated cheddar to top


1. brown the onion and mince and then add all other ingredients and simmer for a couple of hours

2. if making in the slow cooker add all ingredients to the pot and cook on high 4 hours or low all day (I don’t bother to brown the meat doing it this way but it’s meant to give it better flavour if you do)

3. top with spring onions, sour cream and lots of grated cheddar cheese & if you like jalapeños

(notes :  you may need to adjust the liquid considering the size of your pot, how long it is cooking for etc – if it looks like too much liquid I just leave the lid ajar for the last hour or so of cooking – if you are going out all day and putting this in the slow cooker just make sure you have enough stock in the bottom of the pot  *you can play around with the beans/tomatoes ratio if you like more beans add more for this to go further just add a bit more seasoning and chilli )
