My Favorite Chili | Mama Miss #chili #fall #quickmeal


What wonderful fall weather.  The crisp evenings.  The leaves falling.  The pumpkins.  I love it all!

One of my favorite things about fall is the food.  I can just smell the pumpkin spice lattes, hearty stews, and chili.  Oh, the chili!

This recipe is my absolute FAVORITE chili recipe for two reasons.

one – it’s so simple & easy.

two – it’s yummy and classic.


And, once you read the how-to below & the ingredient list, you will be simply astonished by how easy this is to make.

  1. Mmmm that looks and sounds yummy!

  2. You’ve totally made me crave chili now. Chili is so easy to make and it’s super easy to throw things in a slow cooker and forget about it until suppertime. I just need it to get cooler over here so I can get motivated to make it! :D

    • I love chili too! I’ve played around with a few recipes but this one I’ve tweaked and keep coming back too :) Tonight was the perfect night…it’s supposed to drop down to the 40’s tonight. Thanks for stopping by Renee!
