Crockpot Chili

I've been playing with this chili recipe. It's a good recipe because it can be made completely from stored items, assuming you have meat in the freezer.

3 cans pinto beans and 1 can kidney beans (I drained and rinsed 3 cans).

1 quart home-bottled tomatoes AND 1 small can diced tomatoes (could use 1 lg and 1 small can diced tomatoes if you don't have any home-bottled quarts).

1 small can of tomato sauce

1 pound hamburger, cooked with onion (I used dried onions)

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

4 teaspoons chili powder

1 bay leaf

more dried onions (about 1/4 cup)

water, amount to be determined once everything is in the crockpot.

Instructions: Put all ingredients in a crockpot. It will be a little thick because it won't have much fluid in it. Add water to reach desired thickness. Cook on low setting for about 6-8 hours.
