I'm a college student and one of the things I miss the most about school is my mom's wonderful cooking. I also miss her well-stocked kitchen! This slow cooker recipe is something I can make in my dorm on a busy Sunday. I just throw it all in the slow cooker before I leave for church and come back to piping hot homemade comfort food. The first bite of this chili almost always brings me to tears; it's so good to have a little piece of home while away. Be sure to serve with a good sprinkle of cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and plenty of tortilla chips. —Bailey Starkey, Mount Vernon, Washington
