Preparation

Step 1

STOVE TOP:

In a large saucepan, brown ground beef, onions and garlic. Drain.

Add the remaining ingredients to the saucepan. Mix well and simmer over low heat for at least 30 minutes. The longer you simmer the soup, the more the flavors deepen.

Discard the bay leaves and serve.

SLOW COOKER:

In a large saucepan, brown ground beef, onions and garlic. Drain.

Place the browned beef in a slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients and stir. Cover the slow cooker and cook the chili on low for 6-8 hours.

NOTE:

I like to make our chili the day before, then let it simmer in the crock pot all day on the day we are going to eat it.

Serve with noodles, cheddar cheese, sour cream and chopped onions on the side.
