Food and Wine: Suzie’s Slow Cooker Chili Recipe

Chili-RecipeThere’s something to be said for a nice bowl of chili.  The smell of the spices in the house is heavenly.  These days I’m all about the comfort food, it’s been so cold and gloomy lately that I need some warm and cozy.  Winter is all about finding something warm and cozy and a big bowl of chili always hits the spot.

My chili recipe is very simple and can be adapted to suit your taste. I make it with beef but you can make it with any grind that you like, add more veggies and beans and forget the meat altogether.  You can also use whatever spices that you like.  It’s all good.  Wine with that? Yes please! I paired it with a nice Malbec. This recipe feeds about 4 people.
