Yummy Crock Pot Chili

Last week, we tried a new Chili recipe and it was delicious. It makes a large amount (10 1-cup servings) so would be good for a family, pot luck, tailgating or holiday party. We like our chili spicy so DH added 2 teaspoons of extra chili powder. We really enjoyed the flavors of the fresh lime and cilantro that you add just before serving.

We liked this chili so much that DH made another pot this afternoon.  It's especially good with a little cheddar or pepper jack cheese shredded on top. Perfect for a cold December night!

  1. Your chilli looks so good, Cheryl. It's nice and thick. I might lighten up on the 'heat' a bit but I enjoy a nice bowl on a cold day. Have a great week.

  2. This sounds GREAT, Cheryl. I just might have to try it....expecting a houseful the weekend before Christmas. You just might have saved me!!!

  3. I am visiting today after a blogging friend recommended that I stop by.

    We have some similarities - I retired from teaching in June, we downsized to the coast (California), but in 1997.

    We visited Maine in 2004 on a New England road trip during my fall break and spent a fun night in a bar in Ogunquit watching the Red Socks beat the Yankees in the final game of the American League playoffs.

    I will be back to visit.
