This slow cooker chili gets a nice boost of flavor by using a combination of spicy and sweet pork sausage, rather than plain ground beef. To turn up the heat even more, use all spicy sausage instead.
Tip: Crumble the bulk sausage with your fingers prior to browning. This gives you better control over the size of each piece and is easier than breaking up the chunks of sausage with a wooden spoon while cooking. Another alternative is to use a potato masher if you have one.

If you have an Instant Pot or Mealthy Pressure Cooker, you could easily adapt the recipe by browning the meat directly in the pot before setting it to slow cook.
