Hearty Slow-cooker Chili Recipe

Posted in FOOD
on November 8, 2016

On this election day, no matter your political views and whose name you’ll be placing a check mark by, I think we could all use a bit of comfort today. There is not a whole lot more comforting than a hearty chili, especially one that tastes this good. As I make my way through the last day of the One Room Challenge, I’m seeking as much comfort as possible! Be sure to stop by on Thursday morning to see the big reveal of our new game room.



I adapted this chili recipe from a fabulous recipe I found many moons ago on Allrecipes.com. The original is to-die-for, but I’ve adapted it to our tastes and, to whatever we have in our house to put into it – it’s flexible. It’s also the recipe I follow every year for our annual Halloween Party, this year being no exception. I’ve yet to hear anything other than mmm.. oh yummy.. so good.. from our guests! I hope you enjoy it, and I hope, no matter who our new President is to be, good chili will help us all to remember that all will be okay. It always is. Even in the world of the One Room Challenge.
