Slowcooker Three Bean Chili Deluxe
I saw this recipe on Design Mom . Gabe loves chili . It's something we like to cook together.
I never considered adding a package of ranch dressing to chili. We looked at each other when we saw the secret ingredient.We looked at each other and Gabe said- why not? You know what? It was good!
It was stated on Design Mom that this isn't a spicy chili. Gabe wanted to add some of his Bat sauce which is HOT and I convinced him to add some cayenne instead.
Perfect for Superbowl Sunday!
