Slow Cooker Cincinnati Chili, My Way!

Slow Cooker Sunday!

Today is a wonderful day!

Not only is it Superbowl's Slow Cooker Sunday as well.

Pull out the Crock-Pots people!

I decided that I wanted to cook one of my favorite chili recipes...Cincinnati Style know the one with the five ways of eating it! 

Well, I just added a sixth way of eating it...HOTLINKS!!!

Yes...spicy hot links to kick it up!

Don't forget to preboil the hotlinks to remove some of the grease out of them.

I sauteed all the veggies, added the ground turkey and lots of spices, poured in all the ingredients and brought the mixture to boil for 5 minutes.

Next, I transferred everything to the slow cooker and cooked on high for 6 hours.

Lastly, it's topping time. Place cooked spaghetti in the bowl, top with chopped white onions, top with chili, more onions, and loads of cheese.

Add cooked beans if you want, but Big Goo doesn't like beans in his chili so I omitted them.

Grab a cold Coke in a bottle, and it's time to eat!

Add remaining ingredients minus chili garnishes and hot links. Bring mixture to boil, breaking up meat, stirring well for 5 minutes.

Transfer chili and hot links to slow cooker and cook for 6 hours on high, stirring occasionally. Add more broth if needed to thin.

I must confess I love great food. I decided to create The Creole Contessa blog after cooking and eating a great meal with my family Big Goo the hubby of almost twenty years and my lil’ Contessa Summer aka “Baby Girl." I told Big Goo and Baby Girl, it is just not fair to not share these great recipes with the world; and the Creole Contessa blog was born.
