When I think about a warm cozy meal, I think about chili. Chili is so delicious and the perfect thing to eat to make you feel warm inside. Chili is my favorite to make in the slow cooker because it's quick to prep for then you can mix it and forget it for a couple of hours. Gives you time to clean, catch up on shows, or just about anything you need to do without watching the stove. I've actually prepped it before work and had it going on low while I was at work and came home to a cooked meal. Chili is also great to put on many things. You can put it on hot dogs, burgers, fries, rice, tortilla chips or baked potato. I've even had it for breakfast next to home fries and topped with a sunny side up egg. Make this for your family and enjoy a bowl of coziness.
