are you eating it for breakfast? why are you making it over night?
the best chili recipes for chili in the crock pot i have found are to just wing it and throw whatever you want in there. meat, onion, garlic, green pepper, beans, spices, tomato sauce and paste.
don't think i've ever made the same one twice. cook the meat and then throw everything else in on low.
