I have almost everything I need to make this. It's cold enough out doors to enjoy a nice big pot of chili, and I'm always up to try something new.
I love to use my slow cooker. It is such an easy way to make dinner. I will have to try this great looking recipe. I love trying different chili recipes.
My family and I are always in the mood for Chili lol! We might have to try this recipe out!
I always have SOLO on hand. I totally love all the color options. They're so festive!

That sounds SO good. I definitely want to make this.
Last week I made 2 different chilis. I'm a huge fan. I've never cooked with beer, or drank one!
I would never have thought to add beer to chili. What a great warm, comfort food dish for the fall season.
I can scratch my name onto my cup?!?! That's GENIUS!!! I so need to find these.
I had no idea you could put your name on the cup like that. We always have a sharpie floating around at every holiday for just that purpose.
You had me at slow cooker. Anyone who knows me knows I'm all about the magical wonderment that is the slow cooker.

You know what the best part of this recipe is? It's not TOO wet. It looks so good with those chips.
