This is the easiest, tastiest chilli con carne ever!! Seriously. Ever!! I ate it three nights in a row before I succumbed to freezing the remainder.

I made it in the slow cooker, but you could also cook it on the stovetop. Follow the same instructions, but instead of adding your ingredients to the slow cooker, simmer them in a large frying pan or saucepan on the stovetop for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
