So apparently there is a blizzard heading my way. Some weather reports are all “you’re only going to get 2 inches” and other reports are saying “Hey girl, 30 inches are heading your way.”

Unless those 30 inches come attached to Ryan Gosling I want nothing to do with all that mess. In the words of Sweet Brown “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” While I’m happy I won’t have to shovel I’m still not fond of the thought of losing power. We have electric heat so no electric means zero heat. There is no amount of cuddling that can keep me warm enough through a blizzard. If this happens you can find me under the covers, flashlight in hand while playing endless sudoku puzzles.

Total old school.

The other big event coming up is the Super Bowl. Otherwise known as “that thing that happens in February where I pretend to care about football but really I’m just in it for the food.”

This year I’m brining you a simple slow cooker chili that is packed full of spice and is perfect when topped with fresh avocado, jalapeno slices, sour cream, cheese and Fritos. Don’t worry, this post is not sponsored by Fritos – I just really love then with my chili.

Plus – slow cooker. Man I love this thing.

So while you watch men run around on the field throwing balls made out of pig skin just sit back and eat a big bowl of this. It’s a simple and total “set it and forget it!” kind of meal.

Do you drain the meat before putting in crock pot?

Hi Terri! If the meat mixture is has a lot of fat in the pan you can drain if desired. Mine was not super fatty so I opted not to drain. Hope this helps! Enjoy the sauce :)
