crock pot chili recipe

The crock pot chili was a success with the last few adjustments. Here's the recipe:

1/2 lb bacon, cut into small pieces
then, in the bacon drippings, brown
1 lb ground beef (or other ground meat)
finally, cook
1 onion, chopped
Put in crock pot along with
2 jalapeƱos, seeded and chopped
1 small can pinto beans
1 can (14.5 oz) tomatoes, chopped or diced
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
one clove garlic, minced
1 c. water
Simmer all day on low.

This recipe's designed so you can load everything into the crock pot the night before and stick it in the fridge, then put it on to simmer the next morning. When you get home, add some corn bread, corn meal muffins, or buscuits (or, if you have one, set the bread machine to have fresh bread ready) and dinner's served.

To crank up the spice level, chop the jalapeƱos without seeding them first.

Now I need to figure out a good vegetarian chili recipe.
