Homemade Chili

Chili is a old time favorite American recipe. It’s made with fresh chili peppers, chili powder, or both. It can be made with or without beans. For vegetarians it can be made without meat. As you can see, there are thousands of recipes out there. This one is my families favorite, cooked in a slow cooker. Which means you can put it on in the morning, and come home in the evening to a great home cooked meal. Graded cheese will top off your experience.
