Over medium heat, crumble ground beef into a hot skillet and cook until browned.
Add cooked ground beef to your slow cooker. Add all of your remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
Cook on low heat 8-9 hours, or on high for 4 -5 hours. Stir sparingly (two times during the last half of cooking will suffice).
If you don't have a slow cooker, you can also make chili in a dutch oven on the stove top. Cook your ground beef over medium heat, then add the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cover and turn heat to low, cooking for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Chili flavor develops as it sits, and can be made a day or two prior to enjoying. Chili makes a great leftover and will keep for several days in the refrigerator or up to four months if stored properly in the freezer.
