Slow Cooker Ranch Cheddar Chili

Well, the snow has stopped and we have a lot more of the white stuff then was predicted. That's okay by me. But ask me in January and I will say otherwise! Since it is so cold outside I decided Chili would make the perfect dinner. This chili is a spin off from my Jalapeno Ranch Chili. It's packed with flavor and oh so delicious!
