Authentic Texas Crockpot Chili

Authentic Texas Crockpot Chili

Word on the street is that the minute we left Colorado , Fall happened and decided not to follow us to Little Rock.

I don’t know why it didn’t follow us, but I have a feeling that’s just something I’ll have to get used to.  Or maybe 80-degree temperatures actually IS Fall around here?

At least the leaves are changing.  And it actually rains here.  I’ll take it

Anyway, yesterday it was supposed to be cooler and rainy, so I made chili.  Not just any chili though:  TEXAS chili .  Thick, rich, and bold.
