Do you want a great tasting slow cooker dinner for pennies?  Something with lots of spices for all kinds of flavor?  Well, Slow Cooker Black Bean Chili is it! Some days, in fact many days, it is so nice to be able to drop a mix of ingredients into a crock-pot and be on your way.  In the winter it helps warm the house and in the summer you can put your slow cooker on the patio and dine al fresco.
