First off, let me shout out my love for Black Label Ranch Style Beans!

These are a staple in my pantry as they are so great as a side dish with burgers or steaks, and I also use them for making nachos, tacos, and now chili! The sauce is unique and so flavorful.

My mom simmers these beans with cilantro and a ham hock on the stove or in the slow cooker for some awesome and easy-to-make beans at all our family gatherings, and they rock! 🤤

This chili is inspired by the Gaines Family Chili recipe from the Magnolia Table cookbook that I first made a few years ago. I’ve tweaked it since and added things in here and there such as bell pepper, only one can of Rotel, Worcestershire sauce, and added seasonings.

Tips for making chili with ranch style beans:

  • Make this recipe in the slow cooker by cooking the meat and veggies on a skillet first, transferring to a slow cooker, and then adding the remaining ingredients. Cook it on low for a few hours until everything is simmered and delicious!
  • I didn’t include any extra broth in this recipe because it really doesn’t need it. The ingredients cook down into a flavorful broth on their own and it’s more of a chunky hearty chili. If you want a brothy chili then add in cup or two of beef broth as desired.
