Fire Fighters Chili Recipe

Fire Fighters Chili will really warm you up on a cold winter day.

I created this recipe to take to our local Fire Fighters for Valentine’s Day. I wanted something to really warm the hearts of the Fire Fighters so choosing Italian Sausage was the perfect addition to the recipe! I transferred it to a crock pot because it was easy for me to leave all day on the counter and cook while I was busy.

This recipe had green pepper and onion because I like sneaking in a few veggies when I can. I serve it with shredded cheese and sour cream as well as crackers but corn bread would be good too!

Be sure to give this Fire Fighters Chili Recipe a try! It is easy to make and tastes amazing!
