Beef Chili

Homemade Beef Chili Made in the Crock-Pot

I’m not a huge fan cold weather, and honey it has been pretty darn cold over here in the Pacific Northwest. To help keep me and my family warm, I decided to make a big pot of homemade beef chili with beans. To make everything easy, I made the chili in my Crockpot. I simply tossed everything in my slow cooker, and let it cook for 4 hours.
