Soul Food Saturday #21

Welcome to the first weekend of September! Bekki is celebrating one of our favorite fall traditions in this house, football!!! We love the pigskin, and everything that comes with it, and she has a great recipe for the next time you're watching your favorite team!

To me it is officially fall when football season starts. Whether the weather has decided it or not food changes in our house. There is nothing like a big bowl of spicy chili with rice during a game. What would be better than having a little prep in the morning, to come home and have it all ready to serve up? This recipe does just that with the help of your slow cooker. It easily doubles for a big crowd with no extra time needed. I love that! So, to all of you football fans out there, this one’s for you!
