I double this reipe and freeze half of it to enjoy a week later. It's better the second time around.

28-ounce can whole tomatoes, rinsed and undrained, chopped
15-ounce can kidney beans, undrained
1-1/2 tablespoons chili powder, hot or mild
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

Brown the ground beef with the onion, green pepper and garlic in a skillet over medium heat. Remove excess grease. Transfer mixture into a crock pot. Add remaining ingredients; stir to blend. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
