Easy Crockpot Chili

Easy Crockpot Chili

There are countless of “the best” chili recipes online or in cookbooks.  My version is a hack of all of them and a great base for any start up chili recipe in the crock-pot.  This chili is great a meal on it’s own or you can top off nachos or hot dogs at your next get together.

If you don’t eat ground beef, swap it with ground turkey or chicken.  Top the chili with cheese, hot peppers, or avocados.

Hope you like it!
