Classic Chili in the Slow Cooker

Classic Chili
1 yellow onion
1 red bell pepper
3 cloves garlic
4 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. cumin
2 lbs. ground beef
1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes with green chilis
1 14 oz. tomato sauce
2 cans beans, rinsed and drained

Brown the ground beef, until no pink remains.

Chop the onion, pepper and garlic,
Saute until softened.

Drain and rinse the beans.
Add all ingredients along with the seasonings to your slow cooker.

I like to add some oregano and basil...
...and for some extra kick, crushed red pepper.

Cover and cook until the chili thickens and the flavors blend, 
about 6 hours on the high setting.

Serve with
Sour Cream
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Thinly sliced Green Onions
