There is nothing better than a warm, comforting meal that consist of a bowl of chili on a cold day. But there is no need to spend all day stirring at the stove. Instead, let your slow cooker do the work for you with these easy and delicious chili dinners. From classic beef chili meal to chicken chili (and even vegetarian!) we have a slow cooker chili meal for everyone.

1 pound lean ground beef
2 14.5 ounces diced fire-roasted tomatoes, undrained
1 15 ounce black beans, rinsed and drained
1 15 ounce pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 15 ounce dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 14.5 ounce beef broth
1 ½ cups chopped yellow onions (3 medium)
1 8 ounce tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 canned chipotle pepper in adobo 
2 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 tablespoon honey
Sour cream (optional)
Chopped green onions (optional)
Unsweetened cocoa powder (optional)

In a large skillet cook ground beef over medium-high heat until brown,
using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain o fat.

Transfer meat to a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Stir in tomatoes, black beans,
pinto beans, kidney beans, broth, yellow onions, tomato sauce, chili
powder, chipotle pepper, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, and coriander.

Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting
for 3 to 4 hours. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Stir in
chocolate and honey. Cover and cook about 15 minutes more or until
heated through. If desired, serve with sour cream and green onions and
sprinkle lightly with cocoa powder.

Homemade meal of pizza has never been easier! Leave your slow cooker to do the work with this easy pizza recipe

In a large bowl stir together the first three ingredients (through salt); add the next three ingredients (through honey). Beat with a mixer on low for 30 seconds, scraping bowl. Beat on high for 3 minutes. Stir in as much of the whole wheat flour as you can. On a lightly floured surface, knead in enough remaining whole wheat flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes). Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, for filling, in a large nonstick skillet cook sausage and sweet pepper over medium heat until sausage is browned. Drain off any fat. Stir in the next four ingredients (through black pepper).

Line a 6-quart oval slow cooker with nonstick pan lining paper; remove paper and set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 14x11-inch oval. Transfer dough to the paper and return to cooker (dough should extend 2 to 3 inches up the sides). Press top of dough edges onto lining paper. Spoon filling into crust in cooker.

Cover and cook on high for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until filling is bubbly and crust is golden, giving crockery liner a half-turn halfway through cooking if possible. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook about 10 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Let stand, uncovered, 15 minutes before serving. If desired, top with fresh oregano.
