Slow Cooker Firehouse Chili

Yesterday was a chilly, dreary day.  What better to do then break out the crock pot and cook up a pot of chili?  Chili goes hand in hand with fall…for good reason.  It warms your tummy and makes the fall weather tolerable.

I especially like this chili, because it was spicy.  Not too spicy where it was intolerable, but it still had a nice little kick to it.

Zack isn’t a big fan of chili that is really soupy with beans in it, so this kind was perfect for him.  It was just meat and sauce.  I really liked it, too.

It also couldn’t be any easier to make.  All you have to do is throw everything into the crock pot!  Plus, it makes your house smell so good all day long.

I sprinkled cheese on mine and added some diced jalapenos.  I love spicy food!
