Crock Pot Taco Chili

Savory Sweet and Satisfying: Crock Pot Taco Chili

Chili with the flavor of taco is delicious. It is not overly spicy or heavy on the taco flavor, they are just subtle flavors in this chili.

I have listed some optional garnishes below. These are just ones that my family and I discussed while enjoying this chili. I will definitely be using more garnishes next time I make this chili to make it even tastier.
