Easy Slow Cooked Chili

I usually triple this recipe, using two crockpots, and freeze enough to have all winter. We eat it over spaghetti, a baked potato, or with chips or crackers. Mark loves for me to make a dip out of it by adding cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese :)

2 lbs. Ground beef
3 cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes
1 big can and 1 normal can tomato sauce
1/3 cup water
Sprinkle with garlic powder ( probably 2 Tbs)
2 Tbs chili powder
2 Tsp. Salt
1 tsp pepper
3 tsp sugar
diced onions if desired
red/green peppers if desired
1-2 Tbs Worchestershire sauce
Pinch of brown sugar :)

: Brown ground beef. Add all ingredients to slow cooker; cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
