SOS Crock-Pot Chili is my recipe that along with many other food bloggers is to support the victims of Hurricane Sandy. We were asked to make a dish that would be what we would feed to those whose lives were forever changed by Sandy. Living in Texas, chili comes to mind. Living through a few hurricanes myself I know what a good home-cooked meal can do to help raise the spirits.
SOS Crock-Pot Chili is a very easy chili to put together, it has very common ingredients, and by using a Crock-Pot we have a meal that almost cooks itself.
It is my hope that you consider a donation to a charitable organization to assist those whose lives were impacted by this tragedy.

- In a skillet over medium high heat cook together the ground beef, onion, chopped garlic, and celery. Cook until the ground beef is no longer pink.
