It’s November. So in theory, it’s time for fall food. Stews, soups, chili. Fall really is my favorite food season of the year (don’t even get me started on how much I love Thanksgiving!)

This year has been a weird year though. Hubby and I spent last weekend soaking up as much sunshine as we could. The highs both days were in the upper 70s and we even hit the low 80s. And even yesterday, we went downtown to vote early and it was 81 out. On November 2. Unreal.

But today we’re back to more seasonal temperatures, which makes me want all those delicious, stick-to-your-ribs kind of foods. Enter this crockpot chicken chili. It really is easy. And tasty. What more could you want?

I topped ours with some fresh avocado and cilantro – two of my favorite ingredients. Speaking of cilantro, I’m sure you’re all aware that there are people who HATE it. We all know someone like that. In fact, my sister hates cilantro.

For some reason, I was recently parusing the website ihatecilantro.com and came across their haiku page. Now, I hated writing haikus in high school english class, but I found these haikus about hatred towards cilantro pretty freaking hilarious. Check them out if you need a chuckle.

    I love my crockpot. Most people think they should only be used in the winter, but I love using mine in the summertime because then your kitchen doesn’t get hot and you still have a hot meal ready when you get home from work!

    I have been in love with Stephanie O’Dea’s crockpot blog for a few years now and cook from it all the time. It was so exciting to see that you were linking back to her in this post – it’s like the corners of my culinary universe have collided into deliciousness! I highly recommend Stephanie’s blog and book for those who are looking to utilize the crockpot more often.

    I’ve always wanted to make a chicken stock like this. (I thought that chicken broth involved the chicken meat while the stock involves the carcass. I could be wrong since I just started cooking over a year ago.) Anyway, thanks for sharing this recipe!
