Crock Pot Famous Chili ~ Amazing chili to warm up to on a cold winter’s day made in your slow cooker!
It’s a bitterly cold winter here in Minnesota. I mean our winters are always freezing, but this winter well it’s beyond freezing. The pathetic thing is I think I’m begining to acclimate to it. It’s amazing how 30 degrees feels TERRIBLE in the fall and in the spring it’s a heat wave. Break out the shorts my friends! Summer is here!
Are a few of your nodding your head in agreement? While more of you are going, “Why on earth do you live in that tundra?” I might be with the latter of you. Family. That’s the only reason I’m here!
To combat the colder winter days and nights I have a few tricks up my sleeves….
#1. Dress appropriately – I’ve been wondering if I can find fleece lined dress pants lately…man the wind whips through dress pants
#2. Stay indoors – Yes, I’ve become a hermit. I’m ok with it.
#3. Build big, roaring fires – I love my fireplace
#4. HOT showers – Sometimes it’s the only way to take the chill out of your bones.
#5. HUGE bowls of Chili – Duh…you knew food was going to be in there sometime!
This amazing chili recipe came from a dear friend of mine, who got it from a co-worker and she kept raving about this chili. I figured I must try it right? I made the mistake of making it while I had morning sickness with Miss K. Let’s just say by the time I was done smelling it and making it I think I had two bites and couldn’t look at it. Fast forward two years later and I was finally able to stomach the thought of it again!
WOW I’m glad I tried it again. It’s simply amazing. It will quickly become your family’s go-to recipe for chili! The secret….cumin.
Curl up in front of your fireplace with a big bowl of this Famous Chili and warm up!
