Easy Crock Pot Chili is so warm and comforting on chilly days. It is one of those stick-to-your-ribs kind of meals that is perfect to fill your bellies.
Each one of us usually eat our chili a little different. It is all about the additions and the toppings. Of course, the toppings are the best part. Sometimes there is crackers or corn chips crushed in the bottom of the bowl or on top. But almost always there is shredded cheddar cheese on top and the sour cream, goodness! It just adds a cool creaminess to that little bit of spice that just makes your taste buds sing.
A simple easy recipe that the whole family will devour. That makes this Mom happy.
So tell me, how do you eat your chili?
