Slow Cooker - Chili

Okay. Here is another attempt at this slow cooker business. Our unfounded reservations remain and so does our packed schedule and the hungry crowd. And, admittedly, this chili wasn't bad and truly ready to serve 8,9 hours later.

All we had to do in the morning was to fry or rather sear 1 pound of ground beef.

We chopped up 1 pepper, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 sticks of celery, and half an onion.

All this we mixed up in the slow cooker with 2 cans of red kidney beans, 1 can of canellini beans, 1 big can of crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, dried basil, dried oregano, and 1 of the small cans worth of water. We turned the beast to low for 8 hours +, went to school, work, gymnastics, etc., and ate.

A loaf of bread and Tabasco sauce added the right flair. Not bad. Right?!
