Crockpot Chili

Crockpot Chili

I’m sure that I’m not the only one who totally appreciates a delicious home-cooked meal that is ready to eat when I get home from a busy day!  Having something delicious simmering in my crockpot and opening the door to the delicious smell of dinner being ready is well….pretty magical if you ask me!

I have quite a few crockpot meals that I really LOVE, but none quite as much as I do chili!  Somehow, when it’s cold outside, coming home to a warm, spicy bowl of chili just warms my soul and my body!

There are lots more benefits to eating a great bowl of chili than just the fact that it’s hot and delicious!  The beans in the chili add lots of great fiber and up the protein of the meal as well.  And, that doesn’t even include all the amazing nutrients that the beans provide.

From the antioxidant properties from the lycopene in the tomatoes, to the fiber and protein in the beans and meat, this meal will fill you up, warm you up and provide you with amazing nutrition without packing on the pounds! 

Bon Appetit!
