5 Can Slow Cooker Chili (A Round 2 Recipe)

When it comes to meal planning in the fall and winter months, I tend to lean towards the Slow cooker & CrockPot meals way more than I do in the summer months. I am also a fan of turning one meal into two or three others. That is why this recipe for Slow Cooker Chili is perfect for those cold, busy weeknights. Or anytime you feel like a good hearty slow cooked dinner.

The best part about our chili is not only that there are just FIVE cans involved and a few spices, but also that it uses whatever leftover meat you have available. I have made this recipe with leftover taco meat, barbecue ribs, even steak. I’m sure it would be just as delicious with chicken or turkey if that is what you prefer.

This 5 can Slow Cooker Chili is the perfect meal for cold, busy weeknights. Use up your leftovers to make it quick and simple. A delicious Round 2 recipe!
