Homestyle Crockpot Chili with Butcher naturally raised lean ground beef, turkey, chicken or pork 


  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 medium yellow onions, medium dice
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, medium dice
  • 6 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup chili powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 lbs Butcher ground meat of your choice
  • 1 ½ tsp Kosher salt, plus more as needed
  • 1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (14 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 2 (15 oz) cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped (fresh or pickled) jalapenos or green chilies
  • Garnishes- shredded cheese, diced green onion, sour cream, guacamole, tortilla strips, crispy jalapeno chips….


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering.  Add the onions and bell pepper, season lightly with salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 8 minutes.
  • Add the mince garlic, chili powder and cumin, stir to fully coat vegetables and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.  Add your Butcher ground meat along with the measured salt, breaking meat into small pieces with wooden spoon until your meat is cooked through, about 7 minutes.
  • Transfer the mixture to your slow cooker, add diced tomatoes with juice, tomato sauce and beans, stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook until the chili thickens - about 8 hours on low or 6 hours on high - this will help the flavours meld.
  • Stir in jalapenos or green chilies.  Taste and season with more salt, if needed.
  • Garnish with your choice - some great suggestions are - shredded cheese, sour cream, diced green onion, avocado or guacamole, crispy tortilla strips….the list is endless!
