Refried Bean Chili

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by 2ChinaGirls

Adapted from a recipe in the BH&G Biggest Book of Slow Cooker Recipes. Use a 6 qt crock pot for stated amounts. Halve amounts for a 3.5 qt cooker. Can also be made on the stove top or simmered in a slow oven. Freezes beautifully.

Thi good and easy to make. I didn't put this in the crockpot, I just cooked it on the stove. I don't things real spicy so I did change up some things. I used two 14 ounce cans of petite diced tomatoes instead of salsa and I only used a tablespoon and a half of chili powder. I followed the rest of the recipe as written. As I made it was still a bit spicey for me. I took this for lunches and it was even better heated up
