  • 1 lb ground beef I used 80/20
  • 1 yellow onion chopped, about 1 cup
  • 1 clove garlic minced 
  • 2 cans (15 ounces) kidney beans
  • 2 cans (14 ounces) diced tomatoes 
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  • In a large skillet set over medium heat, add the ground beef, chopped onions, and minced garlic. Cook, stirring often, until the beef is browned and the onions are soft— about 5 minutes.  
  • Transfer the beef to your slow cooker (drain the grease if needed).  
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients (beans, diced tomatoes, water, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt) and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 6 hours.  
  • Serve warm, with garnishes of your choice. Store any leftover chili in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.
