Welp..I embarked on my crock pot journey last night. I think this was very easy to make. For the most part, I just threw all of the ingredients in the crock pot and let 'er go! Seven hours later I was suprised to find a delicious stew-like chunky chili ready to go. I made some cornbread (gotta love Jiffy's) and some fluffy white rice to accompany the deliciousness.
Out of 5 stars, I would give this one 3 1/2 stars. I think that it was missing a beef bouillon cube and more garlic. I tried it again today for lunch. I gave it 4 stars today...it must have had a chance to marinate.
