A bowl full of scrumptious chili is the perfect meal to warm you up in this cold weather!! I am a midwestern Crazy Busy Mama, so I always put beans in my chili. The only time I might like bean-less chili is over my chili dog 😉 But if you are a Texan, no doubt you beg to differ and might enjoy your chili bean free. Nonetheless, no matter how you enjoy your chili I guarantee you will love this Best Slow Cooker Chili.

And I might add, this Easy Honey Cornbread makes it a delicious duo of a meal! Guaranteed to be the most delicious moist cast iron skillet cornbread you will ever have!

Imagine sitting at the table with a warm bowl of chili and scrumptious honey cornbread on a cold winter night? Doesn't get more perfect than that mamas!

This is my absolute favorite kitchen tool HERE and pictured below. I use it for grounding up beef, shredding chicken, scrambling eggs, the list goes on! Whenever I cook up ground beef, if i have extra thawed out I usually cook all of it up and section it off in to pound or pound and half size portions for quick easy use for those crazy busy week nights.

I love these little holders HERE – they act as an extra hand in the kitchen for meal prepping! Once I have the ground beef portioned out, I throw it in the freezer and thaw it out for quick easy dinners. This is a great crazy busy mama tip that we would all benefit from and I know I certainly did on this Best Slow Cooker Chili night! It was one less step…just throw the already cooked ground beef and this truly made it a true dump and go slow cooker meal! WINNING! Not to mention, if you use a Slow Cooker liner it will make for super easy clean up on this Best Slow Cooker Chili. HERE are the disposable ones, and these silicone ones HERE are very nice too! Makes for easy clean up on those crazy busy nights! Hey, every little bit helps right?
