If you’ve been a Chasing Supermom reader for awhile now, you know that I have a serious love affair with my crockpot. I adore it. I would snuggle it if it were just a bit more cuddly. =) On winter days it provides such a sense of comfort and warmth…Who doesn’t love a stew or a roast that has been simmering away all day? BUT, so often, people forget about their crockpots in the summer months, when really, the crockpot can be your best friend when it is sweltering! (Want to see more of my crockpot recipes?

I hate to turn my oven on when it is hot outside! I tire of grilling and cold sandwiches….Crockpot to the rescue! You CAN serve your family a hot meal without baking yourself in your kitchen! Today I have a SUPER easy recipe for you! (And you probably have ALL of the ingredients in your pantry already, especially if you follow my guide for “A Well Stocked Pantry.”)
Ready to make my Crazy-Easy Crockpot Chili?! Here is what you’ll need!
1/2 lb -1 lb. of thinly sliced steak (I got a package of pre-sliced steak from the store!)
2 cans of diced tomatoes (I used one can with the juice, and drained the other can and just used the tomatoes)
1 can of corn (juice and all)
2 cans diced green chiles
1 can chili beans (Do not rinse or drain! Chili beans are nicely seasoned with great spices and tomato flavors!)
1 packet of chili seasoning
Simply dump all of the ingredients into your crockpot and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours. Sit back and let your house begin to smell like a fiesta! This meal takes about 5 minutes to put together, and is SO good! I love easy and family pleasing recipes. This recipe is certainly part of the Chasing Supermom Trifecta (Cheap, Easy, and The Kids Will Eat It!)
I hope you enjoy Crazy-Easy Crockpot Chili!!
I crockpot in the summer too! I put my crockpot out in the garage though, due to heat! 🙂
I love all your recipes! Hope you and your family are doing well. I wanted to make this chili, but was curious about how many servings it will make. I am trying to make dinner for 6 adults…do you think I need to double this recipe or will it be enough? Thanks!
Hey Lacey! If you have a big enough crock pot, I might think about doubling it…It makes enough for two adults and two kids to eat twice, but if you had bigger eaters, doubling it isn’t a bad idea…Plus, it makes great leftovers, and freezes well. =)
