I get serious cravings for chili when the weather gets cooler. It has been raining like crazy, so I thought I would make a slow cooker chili. OOHWEE! this is the best chili….evah! I like my chili with beans, but you can leave them out if you like, but they are soooo good! I like my chili with chopped onions and shredded cheese on top!
