Male Chauvinist Chili

Pam Ellingson


My Husband told me about this chili recipe before we were married. He said he had made a batch in the crockpot to try it and when he got home from work, his roommate had eaten the whole batch except for about 8 oz. Told him it was the best chili he had ever eaten. I found the original recipe in Rival's Crockpot Cooking and have made it for him so he could have a taste before it was all gone. LOLOL Good chili for sure. (Photo borrowed until I make this again)
