How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Place ground beef and onions in 10-inch skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 7-10 minutes or until beef is browned. Drain off liquid. Place into 4- to 5-quart slow cooker.

  2. STEP 2

    Add all remaining chili ingredients. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6-8 hours, or on High heat setting 3-4 hours.

  3. STEP 3

    Just before serving, combine all salsa ingredients in bowl.

  4. STEP 4

    To serve, spoon chili into individual serving bowls; top with avocado salsa. Serve with toppings as desired.

Tip #1

- This chili is even better the next day! The avocado salsa is best prepared just before serving.

Tip #2

- Chipotle peppers are large, dried, smoked jalapeño peppers. They are sweet in flavor with tobacco and chocolate tones, a Brazil nut finish and a subtle, deep, rounded heat.
