Chili

A staple in our house is this slow cooker chili recipe. As soon as the weather turns cold and football season is upon us, we turn to this simple 5-ingredient recipe. This chili holds its own, and also tastes great on top of a baked potato or piled onto some nachos for the big game. Like your chili with a little extra kick?
