Krystle's Slow Cooker Crock-Pot Chili

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 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. 🙂

  2. Jacqueline Gum says:

    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 🙂

  3. 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.

  4. William Rusho says:

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Hello

    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
