Simple slow cooker chilli recipes
There’s a tin of Stag Chilli like that one that’s on a shelf in the main office of C wing, HMP Wealstun, which sits there in rememberence of an officer called Hughie, who dropped down dead of a massive heart attack while doing his last roll count, on a Monday morning after a week of nights. Staff found it in his locker after his funeral, along with his supply of duty free tobacco.
It’ll still be there when they demolish the wing!

All useful, although have the raw mince tinned Tom’s and kidney beans already, the corner shop doesn’t sell stag chilli sadly, and due to recovering from an op can’t drive or walk the 2 miles to town to get it. Have a range of spices just hoping for a tried and tested recipe.Posted 5 months ago
Forget the packet…
Just make sure there is garlic in there, then add Cumin, Smoked Paprika, a cinnamon stick, some bay leaves, touch of oregano and some smoked chillis

I would also chuck in a 4 bean mix along with the kidney beans for variety.
My recipe is pretty similar to Mike’s, my “secret” ingredients though are cocoa powder & soy sauce. Also IMO you won’t really notice if you skip the cinnamon, bay & oregano (although I’ll use them if I have them/can be arsed)
Oh yeah & chunks of beef, not mince obvsPosted 5 months ago
Acapulco Chicken recipe which is basically a chicken chilli.
You definitely don’t need to do these in a slow cooker though, really.
As it’s snowing and comfort food will be required later, i’m Going to put this – Delias Beef Goulash – in the slow cooker this morning, for tucking in too tonight. Now that’s a proper slow cooker recipe 😀Posted 5 months agofrankconwaySubscriber

Say no to mince folk.
Don’t use stewing steak either that doesn’t end well. Just goes chewy.
Get doon the butchers and get some back vein or spaul. It’s cheap
Chop up your chillis onion garlic and ginger. Chuck into blender and blitz. Cover the raw meat in it. Leave for a couple hours.
Stick in slow cooker. Deglaze Pan with some beef stock and add to the slow cooker 2 tons of whole tomatos some tomato puree , some smoked paprika , a couple sliced open but whole birds eyes (remove before serving ) and some dark chocolate.
Cook over night + next day ( wrap lid in dishtowel for the day to reduce the sauce a) serve at night. Meat should have broken up and tender as hell.
Never fails to go down well.Posted 5 months ago13thfloormonkMember
Awesome, will try some of these this weekend, although I suspect that much like my bolognese, however fancy I get or authentic the ingredients, it will taste the same as every other bloody chilli I’ve ever done, i.e. passable but boring.
I seem to have a knack for reducing any selection of ingredients, however exciting, down to the exact same flavour every time 🙁Posted 5 months agochvckMember
Sure isn’t simple but I want to try making this – http://www.seriouseats.com/2010/01/how-to-make-the-best-chili-ever-recipe-super-bowl.html (well, actually I want to try http://www.seriouseats.com/2012/01/best-vegetarian-bean-chili.html) to see if it really is all that. I find reading the reasoning behind each ingredient pretty interesting though.Posted 5 months agotrail_ratMember
toby you are indeed correct. som lardons whizzed through the pan to brown and then thrown into the slow cooker on the morning after the night cook works well. (although i only started doing it at that point as once i forgot to buy any lardons/bacon and the shop in the village had closed when i started cooking it so had to wait till AM for bacon.)Posted 5 months agojohndohMember
I have stopped using mincemeat altogether – I now get a shoulder of pork lathered in chipotle sauce and slow cook it all day. When I get home from work I shred it then add to it:
One sweet red pepper
Five cloves of garlic (crushed)
One packet Old El Paso spice mix
Splash of Lee & Perrins
Splash of Encona Caribbean chilli sauce
Splash of lemon juice
Three tins kidney beans in chilli sauce
Three tins tomatoes in chilli sauce
A very big handful of sweetcorn
Then simmer for a couple of hours on the hob until the onion is well softened.
Serve with tortilla wraps and jalapenosPosted 5 months ago
add to the slow cooker 2 tons of whole tomatos
not sure my slow cooker is quite big enough 😯
Noticed some people measure out spices in teaspoons… I always use tablespoons – makes for a really thick sauce. If you can’t stand a spoon up in it it ain’t done right 🙂Posted 5 months agotrailwaggerSubscriber
