A Smoky Crockpot Chilli Recipe

Because chilli is the kind of food that needs a long, slow simmer to perfectly mix all the major flavours at play, it works especially well in a slow cooker.

Huge flavours abound in our crockpot chilli recipe, which includes a smokey chipotle pepper, a hoppy IPA, and generous amounts of cumin and chilli powder to bring everything together.  

We like to serve this with a stack of warm tortillas or a piece of cornbread because chilli and corn go together naturally.   

Now pull out your slow cooker and relax. (Apologies, but it was necessary.)
