Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

This is another of the recipes from the little booklet that came with my first crock pot in the 1970s.

4 pounds ground chuck, browned in skillet and drained
3 cups water
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon salt
2 to 3 tablespoons cumin
4 to 6 tablespoons chili powder

Put all ingredients in CROCK-POT; stir thoroughly to mix spices.  Cover and cook on High for 2 hours, stir well and turn to Low for 6 to 10 hours.  Serve topped with fresh chopped onion.

(Try this over Mexican Red Beans. .. Hm-m-m good!)

Note the recipe for the beans they suggest you put this over was posted on this blog a few days ago.
