In Your Sleep Chilli

I usually try and relax at the weekend, but this weekend was different. Not only was I having some friends around for dinner, I also had some heavy-duty work to do in my garden that needed to be finished before the weather changed.

Because I can’t be in two places at once, on Friday night, I started searching around the internet, looking for easy but healthy meals to make for my dinner guests. Thankfully, after a few unsuccessful searches, I found the recipe I want to share with you today for an easy, slow cooker chili.

With this great recipe, I could just toss everything in my slow cooker and leave it while I worked in my garden.

The smells coming from my kitchen were amazing and, right on time, the chili was ready. It was a big hit with my dinner guests, and I know you and your family will love it too. And best of all, despite feeding a lot of people, there was still some left for me to eat on Sunday too!

Preparation time – 15 minutes

Cooking time – 6-8 hours

Number of servings – 6


  • 1 pound lean, ground beef
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 15-ounce can chili beans

For serving:

  • 1 finely sliced onion
  • 1 cup sour cream

  1. Place the ground beef and the onion in a hot, oiled pan, and cook until browned. Drain off any excess fat.
