Slow Cooker Hearty Chili With Beef or Venison

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by Miss Tinkerbell

This is my variation of chili. I usually cook it with ground venison, though it tastes just as good with ground beef, and I am sure ground turkey would be fine as well. I use a 4.5 qt slow cooker.

Very easy to prepare, especially since I chopped the onion and cooked the meat the night before, so when it came time to put the ingredients together, it was pretty much "zip zip zip!" Even with only 1/2 the onion, it was a bit too oniony for my personal taste, but my husband wolfed down a big bowl and froze the rest for later consumption. Overall a good chili.
