My Chili Valentine in a Crock Pot

29 Oct

According to legend, Spanish priests called the first chili “the soup of the Devil” because they believed that chili peppers were an aphrodisiac. This is my beau’s creation and named it so b/c of the pink & red bean combo. He calls it “taste-tastic” and “the best chili you’ll ever eat, ever”.
