- During the last hour of cooking add in shredded pre-cooked chicken.
- If you prefer a little beefy flavor, add in beef fat instead of meat. The Better than Bouillon Beef base works great.
- If you want a super hot chili then add more chili sauce or a few inches of cayenne powder.

The wonderful thing about slow cooker or crockpot chili is you just toss in the ingredients, cover, and cook on low for at least 5 hours for the best flavor.
I love my 3 quart Crockpot by Magnolia Home from Target. It really is the perfect size for cooking for two with a little leftover for lunch the next day.
Can I make this on the Stovetop?
Yes! If you don't have the time and want a quick meal then you can also make this on the stovetop in less than an hour.
- In a dutch oven or heavy bottom pan, saute the onion and peppers.
- Add the remaining ingredient and cook on low for 45-60 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Stir occasionally.
