This flavorful, meaty chili is my favorite...and it's so easy to prepare in the slow cooker. It's a great way to serve a crowd without last-minute preparation. I got the idea from my mother, who used her slow cooker often for soups and stews.

This is a nice change of pace from traditional beef chili, offering a whole different set of flavors to enjoy. I like to serve cheddar cheese bread on the side. You can also serve the chili over rice. —Traci K Wynne, Denver, Pennsylvania
Because it looks different than traditional chili, my family was a little hesitant to try this dish at first. But thanks to full, hearty flavor, it's become a real favorite around our house. I like to serve it with warm corn bread. —Jeanette Urbom, Louisburg, Kansas
This chili, loaded with white beans and cubes of pork, has plenty of bite. But if it’s not spicy enough for you, top it with shredded jalapeno jack cheese and finely diced onions. —Larry Laatsch, Saginaw, Michigan
This zippy chili is a pleasant change from the traditional beef chili recipes I've tried. It tastes so good served with your garden-fresh steamed green beans, sliced cucumbers and hot crusty bread. It's especially satisfying on a cold day. —Christine Hartry, Emo, Ontario
Canned soup and beans are the secrets to the recipe's rapid preparation. For even faster meal making brown, drain and freeze the ground beef when time allows. When ready to use, just combine frozen cooked beef with the other ingredients and simmer as directed.—Jean Ward, Montogomery, Texas
My husband had this type of chili when visiting a friend in Ohio and was super- thrilled when I made it at home. Our favorite way to serve it is five-way with spaghetti, cheese, onions and beans. —Tari Ambler, Shorewood, Illinois
