Crock Pot Chili

Nothing is as satisfying to my family as a big bowl of chili.  It is hearty, tasty, and delicious.    I love it sprinkled with lots of cheese with some cornbread on the side.   Chili is very to make easy and budget friendly.  It also is great when you have a crowd of people to feed.  

For this recipe, I placed all of the ingredients in a crock pot, stirred to mix well, covered, and cooked on low for 8 hours.  Once the chili was done, I tasted it and re seasoned it a bit.    I  ladled the chili into bowls and topped it with cheese.  I also had various other toppings for the family such as diced onion, sour cream, chopped cilantro, and crackers.
