FREEZER MEAL- Crockpot Chili

This chili tastes just like the chili you get from Wendy's Fast Food Restaurant. It's probably one of, if not, the easiest freezer meal to put together.

Crockpot Chili

2 lbs. ground beef, browned and drained

3 16-oz. cans kidney beans, drained

2 16-oz. cans Northern beans

4 14 ½ oz. cans diced tomatoes

2 medium onions, chopped

1 c. chopped green peppers

1 tsp. garlic powder

3 Tbsp. chili powder

2 tsp. cumin

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients, and separate into 2 1-gallon freezer bags. Seal, making sure you push out as much air as possible, and lay flat to freeze.
When ready to serve, thaw overnight in refrigerator. Pour chili into crockpot, and cook on low 8 – 10 hours. (I cheat on this. I defrost it slightly in the microwave, then put everything in the crockpot on high for an hour. After that, I switch it back to low for the remaining cooking time.)
