The weather is getting crisp, which means it’s time to break out the slow cooker and find a good chili recipe! This is the perfect meal to come home to after the Friday night football game or serve at a Saturday lunch. The best part: the prep is really simple for a chili recipe (we are all for a “slow cooker” doing the heavy lifting for us!).
Huge thanks again to Nancy, who loves to share her delightful recipes with us!
