    Funny thing, I have used slow cookers for about 20 years and never have I ever made a chili in one. Today, I used this recipe and threw in 2 small diced onions, 1 diced green pepper and a 1/2 of chopped frozen jalapeno. I also increased the chili pepper and used ancho chili pepper. This was super easy to make. Will definitely make again!

    I doubled this recipe for a party. It was very successful, but I made a few changes: I used 2/3 beef and 1/3 pork. I couldn't imagine chili without onions, so I cut one up and threw it in. The spices were good but I wanted more so added a chipotle in adobo sauce, plus a spoonful of extra adobo sauce. After a couple of hours of cooking it seemed dry so I added another can of diced tomatoes. Overall, with those changes, a great result.
