Special Touch
Add some zip to your serving bowls by brushing the edges of the bowls with shortening, butter or margarine then sprinkle with chili powder.
Substitution
You can also use a 28-ounce can of whole tomatoes instead of the diced tomatoes. Use a spoon to break up the whole tomatoes in the slow cooker.
Variation
If you like chili with a little kick, stir in 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) with the cinnamon.
