Slow cooker chili is wonderful to put together. Place all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and forget it. I like to make this when I am not in the mood to stay in the kitchen all day. 

Spring is almost here, and today was just a little bit chili, and so that is why I decided to make slow cooker chili.

Add some cornbread, and your meal will be complete. This cornbread is one of my favorites:  fluffy cornbread.
