The picture that won my taste buds over:
My before & after pictures:
Here's what I changed up instead of purchasing all of those spices I purchased a chili packet that I have used before for my traditional chili. Its $1.99 which saved a lot of $. I used 1/2 of an medium onion and 1/2 a clove of garlic. Only because the crock pot was full. I would suggest adding more brown sugar for a sweeter taste. The directions say on low in the crock pot for 10 hours. Thats way too much time so I did 2 hours on high and then 2 hours on low, stirring often. It turned out great! I added shredded cheese on top with bread & butter and it was perfect! Have you created a pinterest recipe lately?
