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.

6 or 7 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 lb ground beef
2 cans chili-ready stewed tomatoes
2 cans chili beans
1 cup water
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 tsp chili powder (more or less to suit taste)

In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to keep from burning. Add onion and cook until onion is slightly caramelized. Drain all grease off the mixture. Transfer mixture to the crock pot. Add the ground beef to the same skillet and cook until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain mixture well. Transfer mixture to the crock pot.

Add the remaining ingredients to the crock pot; stir to mix all ingredients together. (Add a second cup of water if you prefer a thinner chili.) Place lid on cooker and cook 7 to 8 hours on low. Stir occasionally during cooking.
