In a large nonstick skillet, cook the beef over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until browned, stirring frequently to turn and break up the beef. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beef to a 2- to 3-quart slow cooker. Add the remaining chili ingredients to the slow cooker, stirring to combine. Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 7 to 9 hours, or until the onions and bell peppers are tender and the flavors have blended.
