Instructions Combine half the seasoning mixture with ground meat of your choice and mix until well combined. Brown ground meat of your choice , onions, and garlic until no pink remains. Drain any fat. Add beer and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated. Combine meat mixture and all remaining ingredients, including remaining seasoning, in a slow cooker. If desired, slightly mash the whole tomatoes.

Notes You can add vegetables to this recipe if you'd like. Diced bell peppers, zucchini, and mushrooms are great added to crockpot chili. Veggies contain water so you might like to pre-cook them or leave the lid off the slow cooker for the last while of cooking. To thicken leave the lid off the Crockpot and let some of the liquid evaporate. Chili freezes well in an airtight storage container.
