Chili Champ Gourmet Gift Pack Giveaway and Review. Thank you Bruce Foods.

With Winter in full swing here in the Midwest, I am always looking to make some comfort food.  One of our favorites in Homemade Crockpot Chili.  I have recently tweaked my wonderful recipe, thanks to some Chili fixings I received from Bruce Foods to review and giveaway to one lucky person.

Here is a little bit about those flavorful ingredients...and then I will share my recipe.
Mexene® Chili Powder : Created in 1906, Mexene features only the highest quality sun-ripened pre-frost chili peppers blended with cumin, oregano, and garlic.  Mexene® Chili Powder is called "The Chili Champions' Choice" and is endorsed by CASI, The Chili Appreciation Society International. Mexene is the secret ingredient used in the past eight winning recipes from the World Championship Chili Cookoff in Terlingua, Texas.
Original Louisiana Hot Sauce: The original cayenne pepper sauce of Louisiana, with an 80-year reputation for quality and perfection. This versatile condiment can pep up almost any meal, especially chili, soups and stews. There's only one ORIGINAL Louisiana Hot Sauce, and this is it!

Here is my recipe for some easy and flavorful Chili...(and Healthy as I love to add Veggies)
