Its really dry…why?
Hi Jillian…I have a question, when you started the Chili, were your ingredients in the crock pot covered? Sometimes with the many different crock pots, shapes and sizes, your ingredients will not be covered. I have added broth and sometimes water (as long as it is not a lot of water) to cover the ingredients in the crock pot. I have been very successful with my soups by following this practice. Please let us hear on your next recipe from getcrocked.com on how it turned out, and be sure to purchase the e-book it is still only $5.00 today. Thank… Read more »
Chili is also good topped with sour cream!
was just wondering how many servings this recipe makes?
Lisa the serving size is in the upper right hand corner, but happy to tell you it serves 10! Happy Crocking!
Would you recommend this recipe for a freezer meal? I’d like to make this to toss in the freezer for a quick (slow!) meal on busy activity nights. =)
Tracy … absolutely! Love pulling things out of the freezer! We just pulled some Crock Pot Lasagna out, and it was delicious! Happy Crocking!
