      This is my favorite method of cooking during the cold winter months, and chili is my favorite using the crockpot. Your recipe sounds so yummy and I'm putting it on my list for this week's meal planning.

      Crock pot cooking is so convenient, I love it. It makes life so much easier. This looks like a good chili recipe to have in the arsenal. The kids will always eat chili. Nice one, it's a keeper.
