Crock Pot Chili

I got this recipe at a church activity a couple months ago and it is my new favorite chili recipe. It has more beans than meat, which I prefer, but if you are a meat lover you could add an extra 1l/2 lb. ground beef.

Crock Pot Chili
3 (16 oz) cans pinto beans
28 oz. can crushed or diced tomatoes (I used crushed)
1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped
3 stalks celery chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
2 T chili powder
1 t pepper
1 t cumin
2 T sugar
1 1/2 t salt

Directions:-Brown ground beef with onions and green pepper.
-Add all ingredients to crock pot.
-Cover and cook on low 10-12 hours or on high 5-6 hours.

(Out of curiousity, do you eat crackers or tortilla chips with your chili? I grew up using tortilla chips, but Mike thinks it is a little strange and said they always serve crackers with chili at restaurants, etc. - which is true. So I have been wondering if my family just did it for me since I can't eat crackers, or because we are such Mexican/Southwest food lovers that we eat tortilla chips with everything? Let me know what you prefer!)
