Crock Pot Chili Recipes
Taco Chili

Compared to many crock pot chili recipes, this is family approved. A mild chili recipe that uses store bought taco seasoning creating a flavorful taco chili.

The great thing about any crockpot chili recipe is you can basically add or subtract ingredients to suit your own taste. We use black beans for this recipe, but red kidney beans can also be used or substituted. Adding diced celery or diced green peppers was another option that we also enjoyed.

In many slow cooker chili recipes the meat can turn out gritty, a mixture of milk and bread combined with the ground beef before browning will solve this problem. Cooking chili on those long, cold winter days is a great way to to keep you warm. Topping this taco chili up with your favorite shredded cheese and some taco chips is a fun way for the kids to enjoy this meal.
