Expert Tips

Stir in 1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, drained and rinsed, during last 30 minutes of cooking.

Top chili with diced onions and shredded Cheddar cheese.

Dried herbs and seasonings should be fresh and aromatic; this is important anytime you are cooking, but even more so when slow cooking. If you have herbs or seasonings that are not as fresh, they may disintegrate when slow cooking and not provide the wonderful flavor impact you are seeking. Worse, if they are stale, they can impart a bitter flavor to the cooked dish.
