Can you simmer chili all day?

Chef's answer
Cook it long enough Chili recipes need time for flavors to meld and come together, and collagen-rich meat (like chuck roast or ground beef) needs 90 minutes to two hours to fully break down and become tender. If you don't have time for a long simmer, try using a slow cooker or making it the day before.Mar 30, 2020

Chili can be cooked overnight, using a slow cooker for up to 8 hours. Set the slow cooker on low temperature and keep track of the cooking time. Any longer than 8 hours and the beef and beans break down and become overcooked. The key here is you don't want to overdo it.
