I pretty much do the same as pp...we are actually having chili today :)
I use 1lb hamburger cooked and drained, 2 sm or 1lg can light red kidney beans drained, 1 can diced tomatoes drained, 1 can delmonte tomato juice (put as much in to your taste, if you use it all it will be more soupy) 1 packet mccormicks original chili seasoning. I also add salt,pepper,garlic powder, cayenne pepper powder, and chili powder to taste. all in the crock pot on low for about 6 hrs...you can also add diced onions,bell peppers, jalapenos, anything really that you like. mccormicks has a variety of different seasoning packets and some are pretty spicy...we dont do spicy so the kids will eat it.
