SOS Crock-Pot Chili

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.

    Hello, I like your recipe. I was wondering if it will thicken and look like yours?? Or did you put something in it so it can thicken up?? Thanks

    What a great recipe for this cause. I love chili and with cold weather headed our way this weekend, this will definitely be on the menu. There is nothing more comforting than a pot of chili in the slow cooker.
