A good basic chili. I did like cooking it in the slow cooker, while I had the stove tied up. Fixed just as directed. I will probably make some adjustments next time I fix it. (Just personal preferences.) Thnx for sharing your recipe, sarahcis. Made for PAC Spring 2010.

This was good and easy to make. I did change up the recipe a bit. I only used 3 cans of beans and I used 1 can of black, 1 can of white beans and 1 can of kidney beans (personal preference). I also used crushed tomatoes instead of diced. I also added a 15 ounce can of tomato sauce because even with only using three cans of beans it didn't seem like there was enough sauce. I also only used two garlic cloves and 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper as I thought 2 teaspoons was way too much for us. I also didn't add the cayenne pepper. Even with reducing the spices, I thought this was really spicy. I did top our servings with cheddar cheese. We enjoyed this but next time, I would reduce the pepper to 1/2 or 1/4 of a teaspoon.
This chili was delicious! It was wonderful to have it in the crock pot during the Vikings game so the guys could grab a bowl during commercials. I got nothing but compliments on how good the chili was! I made exactly as directed, and served with sour cream, cheddar cheese, chopped green onions and corn chips. I will make this chili again - and I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing this wonderful crockpot chili recipe! I have posted a picture of the chili still in the crock pot. I made this for The New Kids on the Block Tag Game 1/4/09.
