A hearty chili is perfect when the weather turns cold; however, not everyone has the time to watch a pot of chili as it cooks. I love this recipe because it lets me put everything into the slow cooker in the morning, and by dinner time, it’s ready to serve. And, on those days when everyone seems to be arriving home at a different time, it’s easy to keep the crock pot on low, and it’s easy for everyone to grab a bowl when they’re ready.

Instructions
  1. In a large, heavy skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat just until it begins to brown, about 4 minutes. Drain off half of the bacon fat. Add the diced onion, celery, bell pepper, and garlic, lower heat to medium and saute until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Increase the heat to medium-high; add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until it's no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Transfer mixture to slow cooker.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker, stir to combine well. Cook on low for 8 hours. Serve with your choice of toppings.
Recipe Notes

Serve with sour cream, grated cheese, and sliced green onions, if desired.

Saltine crackers or tortilla chips are also delicious with chili.
