This is so easy to make it isn't even funny. All you have to do is dump everything in the slow cooker and let dinner begin. HMM seems to me that a Jalapeno cornbread muffin would go well with this.

How to Make Slow Cooker Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix all ingredients except bell pepper, Jalapeno, beans and toppings.
  2. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 7 hours.
  3. Stir in bell pepper, diced Jalapeno and beans. Increase heat setting to High; uncover and cook about 15 minutes longer or until slightly thickened. Serve with cheese or your choice of toppings.
  4. Note: For slow cookers or crock pots with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

    You can also use a 28-ounce can of whole tomatoes instead of the diced tomatoes. Use a spoon to break up the whole tomatoes in the slow cooker.
