    I've made this chili a few times before in the slow cooker. This is a huge family favorite. Making it again tonight for the family to feast on.

    Love Slow Cooker Chili. I've used the seasoning packet, as well as just McCorrmick's Chili powder and my own seasoning. Hubby and I always do the combo of ground beef and ground turkey. I do the basic seasoning of meat of the 1tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper, fresh onion and garlic to taste, when I fry the meat. You need to remember that this is going to slow cook, so don't over fry your meat. Canned fire roasted diced tomatoes work well with this too. Yummy!

    I made this tonight for my first time ever making chili, and my first time ever using a crock pot!! my fiance and I both enjoyed it, only next time I will use a little less chili seasoning (used almost the whole packet, woops!) and I added onion and franks red hot.. Next time I will add green pepper too. I changed servings to 4 instead of 8, and cooked on LOW for 6 hours. perfect.

    What if your local stores don't carry the slow cooker chili seasoning but only the non slow cooker McCormick chili seasoning packs? Can you subsitute that instead, even while using a crockpot?

    I used the non slow cooker packs last night and it worked fine.  Note that the non-slow cooker version only seasons half the volume (4 instead of 8 cup servings), so if you follow the recipe above, you'll probably want to use two non slow cooker packets.  (I halved the recipe since I only had one packet.  I cooked at low for 8 hours.  In future, I might try cutting the half recipe to low 6 or 4 hours as my wife thought the beef was a little over cooked).
