We’re pretty big fans of chili here at Southern Living. It’s versatile, it’s easy, it’s delicious, hearty, flavorful–we could keep going but we won’t. We’re also big fans of our slow-cookers–who doesn’t like saving time without sacrificing flavor? So when a recipe for chili is all of the above and lets us bust out our time-saving slow-cookers, we’re pretty happy. Slow-cooker chili allows flavors to meld while you use your time doing something else, like maybe baking one of our favorite fall cakes. Easy chili recipes are weeknight meal heroes, weekend game staples, and one of our favorite things about fall. Whether it’s an easy, smoky turkey chili studded with sweet potatoes and lima beans, or the perfect bowl of beef and beans, these slow cooker chili recipes are sure to be your new go-tos. Don’t forget the toppings: a little sliced radish, avocado, or some crushed corn chips can accent your easy chili, complement its flavors, and add easy wow to your presentation.
The best part about these mouthwatering chili recipes is that your slow cooker will do most of the work for you.
