Geema, we liked this a lot too... it's one of my first ever crockpot chili recipes and it went down well with the family. I couldn't find celery seeds anywhere here, even after trying 5 shops, so had to make it without them. The overall taste was great and everyone had seconds.I also cooked mine for 8 hours and would make this recipes again no problem at all. Apologies that my photo isn't as good as it should have been.. late evening meal,everyone in a hurry to eat, artificial light... Please see my rating system, a wonderful 4 stars, Thanks !
I thought this was an excellent chili recipe. It had a very full-bodied flavor that I attribute to a well-proportioned blend of spices. I thought the celery seeds added something extra special to the flavor and I would never have thought of using that ingredient in chili. Easy preparation goes without saying but I am saying it anyway. Thanks Geema, my family and I enjoyed this so much.

<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges. As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic. <img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried. But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb. What a complete turn around it was to pass up all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat! <img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p> The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands. Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list. But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.
