Throw and Go

It's that time of year when there are not enough hours in a day, Christmas is around the corner and cold weather is right outside the door.  Family is arriving, friends are stopping by and it is time to think about dinners that can be prepared in a flash.  So grab your slow cooker and be amazed how easy this dinner is to prepare.  You literally throw all the ingredients into the slow cooker, combine and go!  At the end of the day, the house smells fantastic, welcoming family and visitors to the table for a delicious chili, warming their souls and begging for the recipe.  Enjoy!
