Easy Slow Cooker Chili Recipe

Crockpot Chili Is Unbelievably Easy and Amazingly Comforting

A couple of weeks ago, I didn't understand the allure of a crockpot. I was hesitant to try one, but ended up making this chili with Breville's machine. It's the perfect dish for a crockpot novice. All I had to do was dump the ingredients into the pan, turn the gadget on, and voila: hours later my house smelled wonderful and a scrumptious, filling bowl of spicy, chunky chili was in my hands.

The thing I love most about this recipe is its easy adaptability. The original version calls for black beans, but I had pinto and used those instead. Oh and did I mention that you can add the dried beans directly to the crock? They require no preliminary soaking! Seriously, if you have a slow cooker, make this chili — you won't be disappointed. Here's the recipe.
