A favorite on a cold winter's day, this homemade chili recipe will warm you right up. This comfort food is great for parties or as an any time meal.

In a 6-quart cooker, combine both cans of tomatoes, vegetable juice, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and garlic. Mix in the meat, onion, celery, and pepper. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
