What a wonderful and filling Chili recipe! I keep trying new ones in hopes of finding The One, and this is one of the best so far! A few things I had to do differently: I used dried kidney beans instead of navy beans, and since I don't have a pressure cooker I just left them standing in water overnight then put them in the crock pot, covered them with water, and left them to cook for 2 hours on high the next morning. I browned the veg and meat, added the rest of the ingredients, and then, after draining the beans, put all of the ingredients into the crock pot and cooked on low for about 6 hours. I also added two cups of the liquid from the beans which I had reserved - just to make a little more. I used dijon mustard (1 tbs) since it was the only thing I had, and celery salt since I had no onion powder. The results were WONDERFUL and I am looking forward to the left overs! Thanks for posting!
