Chili Recipe in Crockpot



With the temperature 35 F below normal, today's high was 52 F and the rains, well it's been raining for 3 days straight. So chili sounded good today, and hopefully gets the chills out of my bones! And the best part, I cook my chili in the slow cooker. Great thing is that your slow cooker will do most of the work for you.
There’s nothing like your crockpot simmering away, while you’re at the office working… hours later, you come home to a dinner already cooked!
