Our favorite crock pot chili...smells great while cooking too. And like most chili, it's even better re-heated.

I love this stuff! When you're comfy with experimenting with it a little, you can add chopped sirloin or other steak, many varieties of sausage, black beans, kernel corn (yellow, white or mixed), 'shrooms as you please, and serve over anything from a baked tater to spaghetti, elbow mac, roasted eggplant or Spanich/Mexican rice. Yum !!!

Made this for lunches. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't use the celery as I didn't have any. I also used two cans of petite diced tomatoes. This froze nicely. I topped our servings with cheddar cheese. We all enjoyed this. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
