  • 3 pounds (80% lean) ground chuck
  • 1/2 pound bacon finely chopped
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 1 large green pepper finely chopped
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 2 (10-ounce) cans Ro*Tel original
  • 1 (15-ounce) can red kidney beans (drained)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans (drained)
  • 2 packets McCormick chili seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • In a large pot, over medium heat cook the bacon until almost crisp. Add the beef and brown. Add the brown beef and the bacon pieces to a slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients and spices. Put the cover on the slow cooker. Cook on low temperature setting for about 8 hours. Or you can cook on high temperature setting for an hour or so and put it to low temperature for a few more hours (just to let flavors simmer together)
