It’s chili time! One of my favorite go to meals, this is an easy recipe that sits in your crock pot so everyone can serve themselves as they get hungry. The best thing about this chili is that I can skip cooking dinner for three additional nights – that’s always a bonus! There are many ways you can tweak this recipe to suit your own tastes so be sure to read the tips below the recipe for ideas.

1 white onion
1 TBSP chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
