Sherry's 49'er Crock Pot Chili

I've made this chili over and over thru the years. Sometimes I put in a large 6-8 qt pot and cook on the stove and double the ingredients. But today I prepared the chili in advanced and refrigerated the ceramic crock in the fridge. Will take it out early in the morning on Sunday and start to cook it on low for 4-6 hrs. This will slow cook while I'm attending Church, then the gym and should be ready by game time...
