Brown ground beef in large pan with desired seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic, season salt) & teriyaki sauce.
Transfer to slow-cooker or large roaster being careful to not transfer all the fat in the pan. (you want just a little fat in there, so don't drain the meat)
Add all other ingredients in with meat & stir until incorporated.
Add your water to the consistency that you like - I usually add 8-16 ounces depending on how much space I have in my cooker.
Cover & cook 5-6 hours on low- stirring occasionally.
Unplug & let cool for about 15-20 minutes before serving.
Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, diced onions, cornbread or crushed crackers.
