Crockpot Cheeseburger Chili

This chili is great!  Its easy and has tons of flavor.  There are also many ways you can alter this recipe to make it your own.  Enjoy!

-1 lb. ground meat {I have used turkey and beef, although last time I used a bacon pork sausage; all are great!}
-16 oz. bag frozen corn {you could also use a can of hominy or 15 oz. can black or kidney beans}
-1 onion, finely diced
-14 oz. tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce
-7 oz. can fire roasted diced tomatoes {or 1 cup diced fresh tomatoes with a sprinkle of liquid smoke; found near bbq sauce in the grocery store, I find its usually on the top shelf}
-1 packet of chili seasoning {I use 1/4 cup Homemade Chili Seasoning}
-1/4 cup ketchup
-2 tbsp prepared yellow mustard {or Dijon}
-2 tbsp brown sugar
I used 1 pint crushed tomatoes, plus a sprinkle liquid smoke
and 1 pint green tomato pasta sauce from
our garden in place for the tomato sauce and fire roasted tomatoes.
Optional Toppings:
-shredded cheese
-sour cream or plain greek yogurt
-diced fresh tomatoes
-thinly sliced green onion or other diced onion
-thin sliced fresh jalapeno
-real bacon pieces
