Slow Cooker All Day Beef Chili

Chicken Legs is back in the kitchen!  We always try and pick easy recipes for him to try since he is still a beginner in the kitchen.  We quickly decided on the All Day Beef Chili from our new Deen Bros Take It Easy cookbook since all the recipes are easy and very tasty.  The original recipe served 6-8 people, so we cut it down and had enough for dinner and lunch the next day.  Chicken Legs browned the meat and mixed it all together the night before.  The mixture was very, very thick.  We were worried that it was going to be too thick, but after cooking all day in the crock-pot it was perfect!  The flavor was great - good chili flavor and wasn't too hot.  We followed the Deen Bros. recommendation for the chili to be served over corn chips and topped with cheese and sour cream.  We both agreed that this was the best chili we've made.  It is now our "go to" recipe.  Another winner from those Deen boys.

  1. Looks good Stephanie! And high five to Chicken Legs. Love your Valentine Chicken artwork!

  2. Hi Steph, Thanks for visiting my blog. I am enjoying yours. My hubby fixed some Chili tonight very similar to your recipe. I assume that this one is from Paula Deen's brothers????

    When we were in Savannah, we ate at Bubba's ... Delicious!!!!

    Hope you come back to my blog anytime.

  3. Great job, Chicken Legs (hee-hee!) and thanks for passing along the recipe! It's perfect for my busy evenings during the week and it's been a while since I made chili.

  4. Take the leftovers and pour them over a split baked potato with shredded cheese on top....mmmmmmmmmm. (Did it last night.)

  5. Interesting, it's basically the chili I've made all my life, but instead of tomatoes, I use a can of Rotel. It's very good chili.

  6. I thought I posted this last week, but maybe I posted it to the wrong recipe! oops! So I'm wondering if you could sub the diced tomatoes for crushed? I really dislike the texture/chunkiness of tomatoes...any ideas??

  7. Kristin - you can. I don't like the chunks either. Fortunately in this recipe they do cook down and aren't chunky or hard.

  8. Made this with turkey instead of beef, and it was outstanding! I made a few others changes and posted them on my blog giving you the credit of course! Thanks for all the great recipes Stephanie!!!
