My kids think tacos are the greatest food invention ever! I would have to agree that I enjoy a good taco here and there but my love for tacos is beginning to fade. I think it is probably because my children request them on a weekly basis! Last time I made chili for dinner, one of my boys had an idea. He thought that chili could be so much better if it tasted like a taco. Now, I am not looking to transform all of my recipes to taste like tacos, but I thought he was on to something with this idea. I asked him what he thought should go into a taco chili and we came up with this. We hope you like it!

- 1 large jar salsa you pick the spiciness

- Saute onion in frying pan. Next cook ground meat through in frying pan. Add in the minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Now put meat mixture into crock pot.
