Well there’s no denying there is a chill in the air these days. What better time to pull out the crock pot and make something warm?
I find that this time of year is everyone’s favorite time to crock pot, and I found a spicy and delicious recipe that is sure to warm up a cold night. If you’ve got men in your house this one is definitely sure to please, and a great idea for your Superbowl party!
