    This chili recipe has so much flavor! The salsa really adds some spice. I usually skip the corn and add more beans. You can pretty much tailor this recipe however you like your chili. Love it!

    Any time you need to get a meal on the table but don't have time to cook, give this a try. I made the recipe as written but did not add the corn. Otherwise, I followed it exactly. I made this in the slow cooker because I had other chores to do and did not want to stay in the kitchen. It turned out great. I really enjoyed it. It would be easy to spice it up by adding chopped green onion, or more chilli powder. Just season to your taste. Thank you, Kraft!

    I've made this slow cooker chili many times, mostly to take to card parties. I do not put corn or onions in. I've cooked it mainly on low but sometimes on high, but either way, I find the consistency does become soupy, so to remedy this, when the cooking time is up, turn the temp to high, take the top off the slow cooker, and let it sit at least 15 minutes, stirring a few times. I serve with grated cheese and croutons.
