Tips for making Crock Pot Chili Mac Recipe:
I use a small food chopper or processor to quickly and easily chop the onions. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver.
I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take diced onion or bell peppers out of the freezer for recipes.
Any little bit of time we can save is a huge help on busy days. It is so nice to be able to just grab from the freezer and not have to worry about chopping or cutting things up.

If you are in the market for a new crockpot, this one is my favorite. I use this all the time and it’s great.
My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.
Another favorite is this programmable crock pot for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!
I also really love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker if you are making a recipe that calls for that.
