Slow Cooker Sunday: Mama's Homemade Chili

Welcome to the FIRST edition of Slower Cooker Sunday! Sundays at our house are ALWAYS super busy with church in the mornings and small groups in the evenings, plus several things in between those two events. That's why I decided to start using my Slow Cooker on Sundays! I mean, who doesn't want an easier life, right?!?! 
So first up is...Mama's Homemade Chili!

My mom gave me a recipe for Homemade Chili and we loved it! One day I didn't have all the ingredients that my mom's called for and thus began my own recipe for chili. 

Mama's Homemade Chili

1 Jug of V8 Juice: Spicy
1 lb. Hamburger (browned)
1 can Kidney Beans (drained)
1 can Fat-free Re-fried Beans (*optional)
1 can Black Beans (drained/rinsed)
1 can of Corn (drained)

Brown the hamburger in a pan on the stove. After it is browned, drain grease and add the hamburger and all other ingredients into your crock-pot. Cook on high for 4 hours or low all day long.
Serve with cheese and sour cream on top. Enjoy!
