Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Chili

It really does taste like a bacon cheeseburger. In chili form.

This chili will get rave reviews when you serve it for dinner, or set it out for your football watching party!

I wish I could offer you a spoon for you to reach through the screen for a bite.

Look for the special, no need to soak ahead of time Slow Cooker Bacon & Beans from HamBeens! Find them on the dry bean aisle.
