When your hamburger is done, drain the grease. Add all the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot and stir. For the garlic and onion powder, I just sprinkle some over the top of the chili.

Cover and let cook about six hours. I usually start out on high for a couple of hours and then turn it down to low. Cook until the ground beef is tender, about 6 to 8 hours.

You can add corn or peppers. If you don’t have beef broth, use chicken broth. Top with sour cream, cheese and crackers.
It’s pretty versatile.  Enjoy!
