If you’re anything like me, there are nights of the week when you just absolutely do not want to cook. You’re tired, you’re hungry, and you really just don’t want to adult. Take out isn’t really an option for us anymore because of Adam’s gluten intolerance and Kelsey’s lactose intolerance. There just aren’t many places to eat around us that can accommodate both of their needs.

Slow Cooker Taco Chili

Yield: 6-8
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 hours
Total Time: 8 hours 10 minutes

This easy Slow Cooker Taco Chili makes a great weeknight meal. Just a little prep and you’ve got a flavorful, hot meal waiting for you at the end of the day.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning, gluten free
  • 1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes with onion, garlic, and oregano
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 1 C chicken broth, gluten free
  • 1 1/2 C frozen corn
  • 1 3/4 C tomatoes, chopped*
  • Lime wedges for garnish, optional
  • Shredded cheddar cheese for garnish, optional
  • Sliced jalapeno peppers for garnish, optional
  • Cilantro for garnish, optional
  • Diced tomatoes for garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Cook the ground beef in a medium slow cooker until no longer pink. Drain the fat and add the cooked beef to the slow cooker.
  2. Add the taco seasoning, beans, crushed tomatoes, Rotel, chicken broth, corn, and tomatoes. Stir gently, cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
  3. Serve with optional garnishes.

Notes

*I had fresh tomatoes and cherry tomatoes to use up so I used fresh in this recipe. I you don't have fresh tomatoes on hand, you can use a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes. This meal is very freezer friendly. You can add all of the ingredients (cook the ground beef first) to a gallon sized freezer bag and freeze. Thaw overnight before using and cook as directed. You can also freeze leftover cooked soup.

I hear you on the cooking every night!!! My son has multiple allergies, so eating out isn't an option. Unless I bring his food with us...in which case we might as well just eat at home :-).

I've been experimenting a lot with my slow cooker recently, but haven't done a chili. Would love to try this!
