Recipe by redplaid huf

This recipe comes from the Slow cooker email group on yahoo. The perfect combination of tomatoes, beans and beef. So simple to throw together in the morning and wonderful to come home to.

Like the other review said, this is a good base to start with. I made a couple modifications. I also doubled the recipe and found the recipe 'as is' will be a very thick chili. Instead, I used 2 28oz cans of crushed tomatoes and added a cup of water to get the consistancy I like. I also added a couple tablespoons of cayenne pepper and salt for taste once it was finished cooking.
