- Cover and cook until beef is very tender, 4 to 6 hours on high or 8 to 10 hours on low. Then rinse and drain beans and stir in. Cover and cook until hot, 5 to 10 minutes. Ladle into bowls and serve with dollops of sour cream, grated cheddar or chopped avocado. Chili will keep well, covered and refrigerated, up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months.
