“My boyfriend absolutely loves chili, and I never knew how to make it, and I tried one day, came up with a simple recipe, and have changed it a few times, and thanks to the help of my dad, I have perfected the chili to the way my family and boyfriend like it, with beef and lots of veggies. And just to warn you, there are a few strange ingredients in this chili. This is for a 6 to 8 quart crock pot.”
