Pioneer Woman Chili 4-min

Chili is one of those dishes that everyone has an opinion on. We all have our favorite recipe and secret ingredient, but at the end of the day we’re probably going to devour any bowl of it set in front of us. Chili is just darn tasty, there’s no denying it. And the recipe we have for you today is a tried favorite from the one and only Pioneer Woman herself, Ree Drummond.

If there was anyone we’d bet on making a killer chili it would be Ree, the queen of delicious home cooking. Her recipe is a no-fuss, classic chili that hits all the right notes on flavor and heartiness. We’ve got kidney beans, pinto beans, and a hefty two pounds of ground beef. A bowl of this stuff is sure to fill you up! But we couldn’t blame anyone for coming back for another bowl.

This is a set it and forget it kind of recipe, cooked in the crockpot after the meat has been browned on the stovetop. On high the chili will cook up in a couple hours, but we highly recommend you set it to low and let those flavors meld all day long. Give The Pioneer Woman’s Chili recipe a try and it’s sure to warm you up from the inside out. Just what we need on these chilly winter days!
