Homemade Slow Cooker Chili


My recipe for homemade Slow Cooker Chili. The measurements below are for a full 7 Quart Slow Cooker. If you have a smaller one, adjust the ingredients to a lesser amount.


1 pound Ground Beef

1 pound Ground Pork

1 pound Sweet Italian Sausage

2 large Onions

2 Bell Peppers

2 Jalapeno Peppers (diced and deseeded)

6 Cloves Garlic

4 Tablespoons Chili Powder

4 teaspoons ground Cumin

3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

1 can Tomato Paste (6 ounces)

1 can Green Chili Peppers (4-6 ounces)

1 bottle or can of Beer (preferably Stout or Porter)

2 Beef Bouillon Cubes

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper to taste

Chili Pepper Flakes or Hot Sauce of your choice (If Preferred)


In a large frying pan over medium high heat, cook together Ground Beef, Pork and the Sausage, add the chopped Bell Peppers and Onions. Cook for about 7 to 8 minutes or until the veggies cook down and start to develop some color.



Transfer mixture to the Slow Cooker. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir well and cook on low for 7-8 hours, or high for 4-5 hours. Stir and season with salt, pepper to taste.
