This spicy and satisfying chili is made in the slow cooker. Start it before you head off to work, and return to a homemade meal ready to eat! I like to put two scoops of sour cream in with my bowl.

Really good chili. I added a can of pinto beans and a can of tomatoes with green chilies. We like our chili a little spicier so I went ahead and added another tablespoon of chili powder near the end. I cooked it on high for 5 hours, and spooned it over a corn bread casserole topped with sour cream and cheese. Yum!!

This was a great recipe!! The only thing I changed, was adding 1 extra can of tomato sauce. I decided to do this because it was very solid. The extra sauce made it the best chili I've had!

Spicy Slow-Cooked Chili Haiku: "Halved the recipe. And it fed 4 perfectly. Glad I skipped 'cook's note.'" So I followed the recipe, halving it, and upon coming home from work to the wafting wonderful aroma of chili, despite it being a sticky hot summer day (I'll make chili once a week regardless of the time of year - just check my reviews and pictures - I'm a Chili Freak!), considering following the cook's note about adding more cayenne pepper. Took a nibble and passed on the additional spice, b/c it was plenty spicy and pretty tasty.
