Slow Cooker Santa Fe Chili

Simply delicious!  It also has the right kick for me. :)  I know you'll enjoy this yummy chili. This recipe makes a lot of chili.  If you can't eat all of it, simply portion it and freeze it.  I sometimes, portion mine into large ziplock bags and freeze it for up to 6 months.  It keeps very well, it thaws out nicely and the great flavors are still there.  Enjoy!
