Whether you are rooting for the Seahawks, the Broncos, or the puppies, chances are you are going to need an easy, delicious meal for Sunday. This recipe fits all of those categories. A popular item at our restaurant, this chili breaks convention by omitting tomatoes and leaning on onions and peppers for a wonderfully rich flavor. The key points to remember are to soak your beans the night before so they’re ready in the morning and allow up to four hours for this chili to simmer. I read that and thought that this would be a perfect slow cooker meal. Throw everything in your slow cooker on high at 10 am, switch it to low at 1 pm and by kick-off you’re ready to rock and roll!
