Its getting cold out there! The winter chill is in the air and its not even fall (almost, but not quite)! With a weekend filled with cold and rain, comfort food was called for, like slow cooker chili.
I love the slow cooker. You dump things in, plug it in and let it sit and cook for you. Plug it in in the morning and you have a delicious meal waiting for you when you come back home from work. I prefer plugging it in at night and enjoying the wonderful smells as I sleep.
This is the easiest chili recipe and its delicious. Perfect for those cold, rainy days.
