Expert Tips

Regular stewed tomatoes, along with some chopped onion and a dash of garlic powder or finely chopped fresh garlic, can be used in place of the flavored stewed tomatoes.

Lifting the lid of your slow cooker can add up to 20 minutes of cooking time. Instead, spin the lid to clear it of condensation so you can check the food.

For super-quick dinners and totable lunches, freeze the chili in single-serving freezer containers. Thaw, then heat in the microwave on High for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring once or twice, until hot.
