Chili is one of the best comfort foods, especially in the cooler months of fall and cold days of winter. I love the spicy flavors and hearty mix of beans and meat.

  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt, more to taste
  • 6 ounce tomato paste

  • In large skillet, cook ground beef and onions until meat is browned and onions are slightly translucent, chopping up beef and stirring frequently.
  • Add meat and onion mixture to slow cooker and turn heat on high.  Add the rest of the ingredients, mixing in thoroughly.
