Easy Slow Cooker Chili starts out by sauteing onion. Then when they are almost done I add the garlic. Then I cook the ground beef until it is almost cocked. Then you place them both in your slow cooker.
I find sauteed onions add better flavor than raw onions to this Easy Slow Cooker Chili. Then We add all the rest of the ingredients.
By the time everything is added the slow cooker is full to the top!! But that’s ok Easy Slow Cooker Chili is a favorite and always taste better a day or two later!
