The Only Chili Recipe You Will Ever Need



It may not feel quite like it, but fall is here.  My favorite part of fall is the transition to warm, comforting foods.  Nothing says fall comfort food more than a big bowl of cheese covered chili.  I swear this is the only chili recipe you will ever need. It can be totally versatile depending on what you have on hand.  If you want a more carnivorous option, sub beef for turkey, and for a veggie only option add a few extra cans of beans.   I seriously cannot get enough of this recipe, loaded with fresh veggies, tons of filling protein and boasting tons of smoky flavor this slow cooker recipe is a must for fall. I like mine with a side of blue corn chips, tons of cilantro, and cold Downeast Cider to wash it all down.  C’mon, it doesn’t get more fall than that!
