Crock Pot Chili Mac


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced

  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

Desired toppings: cheddar sour cream, green onions, corn chips….


  1. Place ground beef in the bottom of your slow cooker and break into smaller chunks. Stir in remaining ingredients except for the pasta.
  2. Cover and cook for 4-6 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.
  3. In the last 15 minutes of cooking stir in the uncooked pasta and cover.
