One of my favorite meals to eat in the Fall and Winter is chili! I cant say that it is cold here in the desert yet, but it is never too early to start looking for a great recipe. Besides, I am always in the mood to try a new chili recipe and this one sure did hit the spot. Hubby thought so too :)
With the addition of diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, green peppers and spices... this chili has quickly become a favorite of mine. What is great about this recipe is that it uses the crock pot. Now who doesn't like their crock pot? If you don't have one, I urge to get one! Since starting my new career as a Realtor, I just don't always have the time to stand by the stove and cook all day so these crock pot recipes are a life savior! Being a mom and having a career definitely keeps me busy!
To save time... I cook the ground beef the night before. I like to cook the green peppers with the ground beef but you don't have to do it that way if you don't want to. You can always throw them in the crock pot with all the other ingredients because they will soften up in the crock pot.
This is halfway through the cooking process. Mmmmm the house smells sooooo good!
A yummy bowl of chili waiting for me by the end of the day!
