Smokey Slow Cooker Chili
330 mins (prep 30, cooking 300)
24 ingredients
8 servings
This is the cover-page recipe for the Jan/Feb 2009 Cooking Light Magazine. I made it for dinner tonight, letting it simmer all day on low in my slow cooker. It is definately my favorite chili recipe I have tried so far. The flavors are wonderful! I'm definately going to try it out with both beef and chicken too. Just beware, the prep is a little more time-consuming than your average slow cooker recipe. But it's well worth the extra effort when you open the door after a long day at work and have the wonderful smells greeting you! Note, I did make some minor changes, based on what I had at hand (used just cubed pork, omitted tomato paste, added a can of green chilies), but I'm posting the original recipe, as I don't think my changes affected the flavor much.
