So much snow, so little time—to cook. After a day of shoveling, the last thing you want to do is stand at the stove struggling to fix the hot, hearty meal your family expects. Instead, let your slow cooker stand in as chef. While you’re clearing the driveway, a delicious dinner will be simmering away, ready to dig into when the heavy lifting’s done. This classic chili is made even more simple thanks to a seasoning mix of perfectly blended organic herbs and spices.
