This was my mom's recipe. Not sure where she got it. When my sister and i were growing up we hated the beans in the chili. So unknown to us my mom would put the beans in the blender and them add them to the chili. Neither one of us knew this until we were both grown.

    Mix all ingredients together. Stir in the beginning to break up ground beef

    Cook in slow cooker 6 hours

    At the end you can add cooked spaghetti or macaroni if you choose. You can also add the pasta uncooked but this makes it very thick and you might need to add more water.

    When reheating it I use V8 juice to thin it down to desired consistency.

    You can reduce the amount of chili powder and red peppers to taste.
