Slow Cooker Dr. Pepper Chili

It's the perfect day for Chili around here. It's cold and snowy and there is nothing I like more than a piping hot bowl of Chili for dinner. I came across this particular chili recipe on Pinterest. The hubster loves Dr. Pepper and I thought it was an interesting way to prepare Chili. I had to give it a try. I did tweak a few of the ingredients to make it more Weight Watcher friendly and I also made mine in the slow cooker. It turned out great! Smoky, Spicy, and Sweet. Both my husband and I loved it. This recipe will be a keeper!
