Make life simple and still enjoy good taste. Put this chili in you slow cooker/crockpot. Serve it up with a wedge of sweet cheesy cornbread. The combination of flavors in this chili is outstanding. We loved the velveeta and the cloves in this dish. Serve this crowd pleasing chili on a cool day, rainy day or game day. Or if you are a chili lover like I am, any day of the week.
