Simple Crock Pot Bean-Less Chili [RECIPE]

Traci Taylor

My brother, sister-in-law and nephews are coming Friday to visit for a few days, so the cooking has begun! I think my family secretly plans trips to see me because they know I’m going to cook up deliciousness, which is exactly what I’ve done with this simple to make chili.

I’m a huge fan of chili, but despise beans so decided to modify my chili recipe to make it beanless and crock-pot friendly so that I could pop in the ingredients and let it go.

If you like your chili to have a little bite, but not to be too overpowering, I think you’ll really like this:


1 pound of lean ground beef
1 cup of diced celery
1-28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 small can of mild diced green chilies
1/4 cup of chopped raw onion
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
3 teaspoon of ground Cumin Seed
6 teaspoon of Chili powder


  1. Brown ground beef and drain.
  2. Add all ingredients, including the beef to the crock-pot and stir really well.
  3. Set your crock-pot on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours. If you really want the spices to have a chance to come out, you can cook the chili on low for 6 hours, but no more than that.
  4. Serve hot with shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream and sliced chives if you want.

*If you don’t have spices in your pantry, you can still make this recipe using a packet of chili seasoning, but you’ll want to look for a packet that’s mild in flavor.
