This is the third time I've attempted chili recently and this is the first time I've felt the recipe worthy of sharing. I used to make chili all the time using a seasoning packet (like Lawry's) but Tai wanted me to try to make it without the seasoning packet and find seasonings that we preferred. And since I love using my slow cooker I really want to find a recipe that I could use in the slow cooker. I went with this recipe and it was a winner.
-I used a 6 quart slow cooker.
-I browned both the ground beef and stew meat.
-My stewed tomatoes came with onions and peppers so I didn't add any more.
We both enjoyed it and it made plenty which froze nicely. This is not a really spicy chili. If you want to add heat, increase the red pepper flakes.
