Easy Crock Pot Chili

2-2.5 pounds ground beef

1 onion, chopped

Salt & pepper

2 14-oz. cans petite diced tomatoes

2 8-oz. cans tomato sauce

2 16-oz. cans pinto beans, drained

2 1.75-oz. packages chili seasoning mix

3/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

1 can of beer*

Brown ground beef with onion, salt and pepper (to taste) over high heat. Drain fat then add ground beef to a crock pot.

Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, beans, chili seasoning, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes and beer to ground beef and stir until well combined.

Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours or low for 8-10 hours.

* If you really, really don't want to use beer, substitute with vegetable stock or water but I highly suggest the beer because I think it "makes" the chili.
