Notes

Freezing Instructions
Place all chili ingredients in a zip top bag and freeze flat. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and cook on low for 6 hours.
Onions in the slow cooker
Slow cooking raw onions will leave them slightly crunchy and raw tasting even after cooking all day. Sautéing them in a pan with olive oil for about 5 minutes will give them a better texture and taste in the chili. 
Blending the Beans
I know this is supposed to be an easy slow cooker meal and I'm asking you to pull out the blender. If you have the time, pull out the blender and give those beans a whirl to thicken up this chili. You won't be disappointed.
