Great Crock Pot Challenge : Easy Peasy Chili

There is no great comfort for at our home than chili with hot out of the oven tea biscuits.  I tried this recipe from an online source (and then I lost it so I apologize to the source).   It was delicious and like the unknown source, I like my chili mild so it was perfect!
