This clean eating slow cooker meatball chili recipe is a meatball lover’s dream come true!
It’s officially fall!! My favorite time of year!!! The sweaters have come out of their summer storage, the leaves are turning into a million shades of brown and crimson, and the nights are cool and crisp. It just doesn’t get any better in my book!
Chili is a staple this time of year, and I always like to mix things up a bit by trying new ways of serving this old, autumn classic.
Somebody mentioned an interest in meatball chili recently and the bells in my head started ringing. It just sounded so delicious and perfect for this time of year! This particular recipe would be perfect with corn bread.
So dust off that slow cooker if you haven’t used it in a while, clean out the crock and toss this quick and simple dish together for dinner tonight! It will be prepped and in the slow cooke in 15 minutes or less and then you get to walk away for several hours and do other things while this cooks. I love slow cookers for that very reason!
