Simple and Easy Crock-Pot Chili (Naturally Gluten Free)

Crock-Pot Chili is one of those meals that I know my children will devour. They all get excited on chili night and they all eat a great supper!

Crock-pot chili is one of the easier and faster suppers I make! It’s great for a cold winter day — but we eat this all year round, even on hot summer days because my kids love it so much!

They fight over the leftovers — which by the way, chili makes amazing leftovers! In fact, sometimes, it’s even better the next day than it was when I first made it.

Not only is this a delicious meal but it is naturally gluten free! It’s also pretty darn healthy!

This chili is good plain or it the perfect thing to pair with a baked potato (<–find out the secret to fluffy baked potatoes!), hot dogs, mac and cheese, nacho chips and sour cream, or cornbread.
