This flavorful and hearty chili can cook up to 10 hours in your crockpot, in case
your day is a long one away from home. Since chili has been my favorite cool-
weather food of all time, coming home to a crockpot full of its wonderful flavor and
aroma causes extra excitement when coming home after a long day at work.
