You could always put it on high to start and turn it down to low or warm if you feel like it's getting too hot.
If I make something in the crockpot, I almost always put it in right at breakfast time and put it on low for the whole day. Seems to work out perfectly.
Chili sounds great! Enjoy!!
You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.
