There's something about curling up on a winter day eating a bowl of chili. SO comforting! Or kicking back with it watching the Super Bowl. They both just go hand and hand.
This past Super Bowl we had a few goodies at our Super Bowl Party including yummy subs from HoneyBaked Ham and my yummy chili. The chili and the subs were loved by all.

I and several of my husband's family members had several bowls of this chili right away. It was SO good. Are you a vegetarian? No problem! Try Krystle's Minestrone Soup, it's just as good!!
You know, I’ve made chili too many times to count, but I don’t think I’ve ever made it in the crock-pot. I bet that would give it a really deep flavor.

I think using a crockpot is great for chili. It makes the whole process super simple!
Chilli is our first love when it comes to salty food.
This recipe seems like any south Asia recipe, without knowing the name I have cooked in this style many times. Now I know its Crock-Pot Chili Recipe
I am a hot weather person but agree with you guys that on a cool day there is not much better than a belly full of chili. Throw in a fire, a good movie, and you have the makings of a great winter night.
Yes, I agree Tim. Adding this chili to a fall or winter movie night is just the icing on the cake 🙂
Hi Krystle – what a great timely recipe – I can’t think of anything nicer than to hear the wind howling outside while curled up with a book and a bowl of chili inside – unless it’s having a chili-dog.
Chili dogs are pretty good too Lenie! I bet one would best tasty with this chili 🙂
I love chili, especially in the fall when it is just getting cold outside. Nothing warms you up like chili on those days. Thanks for sharing.
I agree William! It is the perfect fall dish 🙂
Sounds really good. Chili is something that I only think of making when the weather is cold but it really comes out a lot better if you make it with in-season summer tomatoes.
Yes, I think of chili as a cool weather dish too. Although I will still eat it sometimes in the summer just like soup.
Ha! This made me want cold weather to hurry up:) Chili is my go to meal in the fall and winter. It is one of the things I will make for myself…it’s so dreary to cook for one. But I make a huge batch and freeze it in portions. This looks super good – I’ll have to try it:)
I love freezing things! I must of gotten it from my grandma. She freezes everything. Please try it Jacquie and let me know what you think 🙂
I love a warm bowl of chili on a crisp fall day. I cannot wait until the weather starts to cool so I can make this. 🙂
Me too Susan. Chili just warms me right up. It’s always 100 or pushing a 100 here so it will be a while for me lol.
