1lb ground beef (or turkey)
1 28oz can ground peeled tomatoes (or two 15oz cans of diced tomatoes)
1 can red kidney beans
1 onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 jalapeno pepper, diced (optional)


Brown meat in a nonstick skillet (if using turkey add a little bit of olive oil so it doesn’t dry out) until no longer pink.  Meanwhile, add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker in the order above.  Cover and either cook for 10 hrs on low or 6 hrs on high.  Serve with tortilla chips or cornbread.  You can top with shredded cheese, sour cream, or sliced green onions…
