I love Chili, but not too hot or spicy,for those that like to burn their stomach lining I leave hot pepper flakes and tobasco at hand. Whenever it is cold out, or snowing especially I get the urge to make a crock pot of my own version of chili. My kids love it, and you can freeze it for a later date.
