Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

There is just something so warm & comforting about having a pot of chili or soup at the ready.

And, if you love leftovers like we do, making a big batch that will be dinner one night, and
lunches for a few days, just saved a lot of time too.
I made this recently for a close friend and when we sampled it before delivering it, Mr. twelveOeight
told me I can make it anytime.  Which means, “I like it, please make some for us soon”

Today it’s a bit overcast and the rain is on it’s way, so the chili is simmering and I cannot wait
to serve it into big bowls tonight with warm, crusty bread and a big salad.
Dinner will be cooking itself while I work on some lessons with the kids and a few DIY projects
around here.


Ok, let’s get dinner started…
