Slow Cooker Chili For Your Busy Holiday Days
Here’s what I need you to do…go to the grocery store with the shopping list that follows and buy two or three of everything. Then make one batch this week and save the rest for another one of those days you know will be super busy. All you have to do is brown the meat and throw everything in the slow cooker for the day.
You’ll have something warm and yummy to eat on a cold December day. You’ll have several meals planned and ready. And you’ll expend very little effort in a short amount of time. Bake up a big batch of cornbread to go with it, and you’ll be in winter weather heaven. Pass this simple recipe on to others so they can join in - that’s all the thanks I need!
