Slow Cooker Smoky Beef Chili

with Black Beans, Crema, and Corn Tortillas

If there ever was a recipe that’s practically made for slow cooking, chili is it. When you make the Southwestern classic in your machine, all of the spices and seasonings have a chance to bring out their best flavors and meld together into savory, satisfying harmony. In our version, the prep is super-duper easy, too. Just make sure to plan ahead, since the cooking takes 6–8 hours depending on the heat setting.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Mix Broth

Whisk together ½ cup water, 2 TBSP tomato paste, tomatoes, stock concentrates, ½ tsp smoked paprika, Southwest spice, and a few large pinches of salt inside your slow cooker. TIP: We sent more tomato paste and paprika. Use the rest of the paste as you like. Save the rest of the paprika for later.


Wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and dice onion. Core, seed, and dice bell peppers. Stir both ingredients into broth in slow cooker.

Cook Chili

Break up beef with your hands into crumbles, then add to slow cooker. Gently stir once or twice to incorporate. Cover slow cooker with lid and cook on high heat for 6 hours or low heat for 8 hours.

Add Beans

Around the same time chili is done cooking, drain beans from container and rinse, then stir into chili in slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper.

Make Crema and Warm Tortillas

Stir together remaining smoked paprika and sour cream in a small bowl. Season with salt. Wrap tortillas in a damp paper towel. Microwave on high until warm, 30 to 45 seconds.

Finish and Serve

Trim, then thinly slice scallions. Divide chili between bowls, then dollop with crema. Sprinkle with scallions and cheese. Serve with tortillas on the side for dipping.
