This Easy Slow Cooker Homemade Chili takes only minutes to prep, you throw it in the slow cooker & let it simmer!
This is the easiest chili recipe EVER my beautiful readers!
it is ultra delicious, rich and sure to please everyone.
Using home canned tomatoes gives the best flavor, but its not necessary!
I adore chili, especially on cold days like this here in Massachusetts!
It truely warms your insides 🙂
Chili is one of my all time favorite comfort foods and its amazing topped with sour cream
Its a wonderful dinner the whole family will love and it also freezes well!
I love to make a HUGE batch and freeze the rest for lunch throughout the week.
Cooking it in the slow cooker really lets the flavors soak into the meat and it tastes so much better, in my opinion!
I love serving it over white rice for a even more filling dinner or served with buttery, crusty bread for dipping is also amazing!
