This is my favorite slow cooker beef chili recipe. I think I made it over a dozen times last year—and already once this year. It is my no-fail, fool-proof, easy recipe for game-day and feeding a hungry crowd.
So, speaking of no-fail, let’s get real and talk kitchen fails because everyone makes mistakes.
I actually did screw up this chili once. But it won’t happen to you—I swear! This was entirely an electrical fail. I followed the recipe exactly and set my slow cooker. When I came home, I was expecting to open the door to the warm smell of chili that had been simmering all day. Nope. I ran to the slow cooker and it was off and everything was raw. Total fail.
