Slow Cooker Beef Chilli

My basic minced beef chilli recipe for nachos, tacos, whatever. The slow cooker is a perfect way to let the flavour develop unattended.

  • 300g Minced beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped finely
  • Minced or chopped garlic.
  • 3 or 4 or more chillies, chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oreganum
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cocoa powder, or a piece of unsweetened dark chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground coriander seed
  • cayenne or chipotle to taste
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • oil for cooking

add the following for chilli con carne, or just if you want to:

  • red kidney beans
  • frozen corn kernels
  • chopped capsicum
  • canned chopped tomatoes
  • chopped fresh coriander leaves.
  • 1 Tbsp flour to thicken the mix if it is for filling tacos.
  1. Fry the onions, add the mince (flour) and spices
  2. Cook until browned and fragrant
  3. Transfer with the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker, and cook.
  4. 4 hrs on low
  5. Add the coriander leaves before serving



About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
