Total Time: 3 hours 10 minutes

Chili is a versatile dish you can customize to your specific taste preferences. Add more diced jalapeños or crushed red pepper flakes if you like spicy chili. If you prefer a milder chili, leave out the spice altogether. Want a bit of sweetness in your chili? Try adding a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies or some chopped honey crisp apples.

Here are two ways to make chili in a crockpot while camping:

  • The overnight method is best if you're short on time before your trip. Combine all of the ingredients in the crockpot the night before you leave, set it on low, and let it cook overnight. In the morning, all you'll need to do is pack up the crockpot and head out the door. 
  • The quick method is just that: quick. It's best to have an hour or two before your trip to get everything prepped and ready to go. Start by browning the meat in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once it's browned, add it to the crockpot along with the rest of the ingredients. Set the crockpot on high and cook for 3-4 hours or until everything is heated.
