Slow Cooker Chuck Wagon Chili

71

I researched various chuck wagon chili recipes on the web. It seems that everyone has their own versions. I tried to create a recipe here that has many layers of flavor. I imagined the cook of the chuck wagon adding bits of ingredients all day until a perfect chili was created. The beer, Worcestershire sauce and the brown sugar give this chili a unique flavor.

2 lbs. ground beef, browned and drained
1 large white onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
3 Tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
¼ tsp. cumin
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 cup beer
2 (14.5-oz.) cans diced tomatoes
1 (15-oz.) can tomato sauce
2 (15-oz.) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 beef bouillon cube
2 Tbsp. water
Add everything to the slow cooker, except the beef bouillon cube and the water. Add the beef bouillon cube and water to a microwavable glass cup. Microwave for 40 seconds, or until the water is hot enough...
