Slow Cooker Chili Casserole Recipe

Slow Cooker Chili Casserole Recipe

Things were really busy around here this week so when I saw this one dish slow cooker recipe I had to give it a try. This Slow Cooker Chili Casserole Recipe is very simple to put together and you can set it and forget it for about 7 hours. When I saw this recipe I was a little nervous about it because the ingredients call for breakfast sausage, and I questioned how well breakfast sausage seasoning would go with the ingredients for chili; they went together very well. Don’t skip the addition of the cheddar cheese at the end of the recipe; it adds a lot to the flavor. Enjoy


1 pound bulk pork sausage

2 cups tomato juice

1 can chili beans (16 ounces undrained)

1 can diced tomatoes (14 1/2 ounces undrained)

3/4 cup uncooked long grain rice

1/4 cup onion (chopped)

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon prepared mustard

3/4 teaspoon salt or to taste

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (use 1/ 2 of an 8 ounce bag and save the rest for garnish on top of the casserole)


1. In a skillet brown the breakfast sausage over medium heat until no longer pink- drain if needed. Place in the slow cooker.
