In a large skillet on the stove-top add the ground beef. Brown and drain.
Add the stewed tomatoes to the slow cooker. I like to cut them in quarters right in the slow cooker with a butter knife. If you are skilled with a paring knife you can cut them up by hand.
Add the ground beef to the slow cooker along with the onion, garlic powder, pepper, chili seasoning packets, drained kidney beans and V8 juice.
Stir and add the lid. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
Low sodium or spicy V8 juice can be used in this recipe. If you also want to reduce the sodium level in this recipe use Mrs. Dash Chili seasoning.Nutritional Values are approximate. Please use your own calculations if you require a special diet.
