Do you have a split table in your home? This recipe gets split between two crockpots to enable you to feed both vegetarians and meat-eaters. I like to call this Meet Ya Halfway Chili because it's my Two Crockpot Hybrid Chili Recipe to Feed Vegetarians and Meat-Eaters. My family is a hybrid family composed of both vegetarians and meat-eaters so I've come to cook in a hybrid sort of way. I've come to cook in this manner through many years of cooking for my own family. Keep reading to find how how easy it is to feed vegetarians and meat-eaters using one recipe. Great for dinner meals.
