Jimmy Fallon’s Crockpot Chili recipe was originally posted HERE back in 2009. It’s a quick to make and delicious chili for any night of the week.
I am most entertained by people who sing and people who make me laugh. Visit my Kitchen Music page for my current music mix to cook and bake to. As for laughter Jimmy Fallon nearly always does the trick. His musical skits happen to be some of my favorites. Search for his parody of “More than Words” with Jack Black on YouTube if you haven’t already seen it.
My husband loved this chili because it was heavy on the beef. My kids enjoyed it because I told them Jimmy Fallon gave me the recipe (HA)! And I loved it because it was quick and easy. Win. Win. Win.
