At What Temp to Cook Chili in a Crock-Pot
Most slow-cookers have two cooking temperatures, “high” and “low,” and either temperature setting will work just fine to cook chili in a Crock-Pot. On the high setting, your chili will be ready within 4 hours. If you prefer to cook it more slowly, set the Crock-Pot on low and come back in 8 hours. Some chefs prefer this method so the flavors have more time to mix and ingredients can caramelize.
The only wrong temperature for cooking chili in a slow-cooker is “warm.” This setting is only meant to keep your chili warm after it’s already done cooking; it’s not designed to cook the food.
