Slow Cooker Chili!!
This is the perfect chili recipe! Lots of flavor, a hint of spice, and has lots of meat, beans and veggies! I love making this chili on a cold winters day. What's better than chili cooking all day in a slow cooker and then ready just in time to watch a football game!?! I serve this chili with sliced avocado, shredded Mexican cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and a handful of tortilla chips to dunk on the side. This recipe is kid approved and they love dunking the chips into the chili.
