  2. Mix the remaining ingredients into a crockpot.
  3. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
  4. Serve with crackers, chili cheese Fritos, or shredded cheese your choice.

My bowl of homemade chili.

It’s fall yall and that means it’s chili time again. Just about everyone has their own chili recipe and this is mine that I’ve tweaked from my mom’s original recipe. Chili is one of those meals that you can prep really easy, throw in the crock pot and forget about until you’re ready to serve, it’s one of my favorite fall soups or stews.

Plus it has the added benefit of being great for leftovers the next day. Even picky eaters love chili or at least this one does. Don’t worry about adding the beer it cooks off and just adds some flavor. My boyfriend’s family serves theirs with the Fritos, mine has always done cheese and crackers. This time I choose not to top it with anything.

I don’t have the nutrition information for my specific recipe but I found a general guide. The link for where I got the information is here
