Make it the Easy Way: Cheap Slow Cooker Recipes
Chili is one of those meals that everyone has a favorite recipe that they simmer for hours on the stove, letting the flavors meld into the perfect concoction of heat and meatiness. Often times, it keeps you home, tending to the pot all day until the moment that it’s reached its peak flavor. But what if you didn’t have to wait around all day to stir the pot? What if the perfect chili took 10 minutes to prepare in the morning, and you could come home to a perfect pot? Crock Pot Chili is just that. Just 10 minutes to get it going, then you can ignore it all day. The flavor is phenomenally rich and meaty, and your family will think that you spent all day in the kitchen!
What Makes Crock Pot Chili Amazing
I love my chili just a little bit spicy, and with a lot of flavor. Adding chipotle peppers in adobo sauce adds a rich smokey flavor that is beyond words. You can find them in the international section of your favorite grocery, with the Mexican foods. The peppers come in large sections, so you might want to cut them up. I usually leave them whole because I love them so much. People ask me what my secret is, and that’s it!

The Best thing about Cheap Slow Cooker Recipes
The absolute best thing about Crock Pot Chili is the price. I can feed 8 hungry adults with a pot of Crock Pot Chili with cornbread as a side. Even without most of the ingredients on sale (the beef was $1.99/lb), the whole pot cost me $11.91. That makes a big bowl of Crock Pot Chili $1.49! If you get the beans and tomatoes on sale, it will be even less! It makes Crock Pot Chili a fantastic addition to your cheap slow cooker recipes.
