Chili - Slow Cooker

I made this today and we all enjoyed it.  Lots of good flavor.  I based what I did off of this recipe I found on Allrecipe.  Nice easy recipe to put in before church and eat when we got home.

Slow Cooker Chili
1 lb. ground beef
1 onion - diced
1 bell pepper - diced (I used a red one)
2 gloves garlic - diced

Brown ground beef and then place in crock pot.  In same pan, saute onions, peppers, and garlic til cooked down and soft.  Place in crock pot with beef.

Add the following:

3 cans beans - I used 1 can kidney beans & 2 cans pinto beans
1-2 cans tomato sauce plus a little water to clean the can out
1 can diced tomatoes
oregano  - maybe 1/2 tsp
cumin - maybe 1/2 tsp
chili powder to taste

Mix all together in crockpot, cook on low 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours. 

We also added about a cup of rice, but it got too mushy so next time we will add it closer to the end of cooking.
