Simple Slow Cooker Pork Chili

This recipe is one of my all-time favorites. It’s so easy to prep, and you end up with leftovers for days. Who doesn’t love more food for less work? It’s also super-versatile. You can have it as a main, with no sides. You can serve it over rice or cauliflower rice. You can dish it up inside a…
