When I make chili, I brown the meat, onions, garlic etc and then add everything to the slow cooker and put it on low for about 8 hours. No watching. Start it in the morning and have dinner when you get home. It won't hurt it to be on for longer.

If I am going to be gone for too long, I connect the slow cooker to a timer. Works for me.

Commit2lose, no problem. A dutch oven is a big pot that you can put in the oven. It tends to be heavier than regular pots. Some recipes start with a pot on the stove top and then finish with baking the pot in the oven. For this recipe, it is all done on the stove so it's not as important that you use a dutch oven. Hope you like the recipe.

I am looking for an easy but good Chili recepie.
We are having a cookoff at church on Super Bowl
Sunday and I would love to participate. Any
suggestions? I cook with ground turkey a lot, so
that would be okay.

Thanks.

Bette
