How easy is this recipe for chili with beef chunks?

I just love recipes like this! Open the three cans, and add each to the crock.

If the stew beef has particularly large pieces, use a kitchen scissors to snip them into bite-sized pieces.

Add the stew beef to the crock, and stir to submerge the meat while combining the ingredients.

Cover and cook on Low for 5-6 hours. Serve with shredded cheese on top. That’s it!

What goes well with stew meat chili?

If you like to garnish your chili (and who doesn’t?), put out some sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and sliced avocado. All are delicious on top of this chili recipe.

If you’re looking for a good side dish for chili, you can’t go wrong with cornbread. It’s a classic for a reason! My teens also enjoy having tortilla chips to add on top.

This meal is already hearty with the beef cubes and beans, but you can also serve it on top of rice if you want to make it even heartier.
