"I Love My Crockpot" ... Chili Recipe

This recipe is adapted (to make it less work, of course) from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, a cookbook I will soon review. This dish is a nice one for company, since it doesn't include any "weird vegetarian foods".

Three Bean Chili

1 large onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper (color of choice), chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced (or from a jar)

Cook these in 1 Tbsp olive oil until softened. Alternately, you can add these to the crockpot uncooked, as long as you cook it at least 8 hours, and don't mind a little crunch to the veggies in your chili.

Place veggies, from above, and the following in your crock-pot:

One can (15.5 oz) each black beans, pinto beans, and kidney beans*
One 28 oz crushed tomatoes
One small can tomato paste
Chili powder, as desired (1 Tbsp is standard, but we use about 3 Tbsp)
1 cup water (you can add more later if it seems too thick)
fresh ground pepper** to taste

Stir. Cook for 6 - 8 hours.

During the last 30 - 45 minutes, mix up and cook cornbread muffins from a package, adding in 1/2 cup of thawed frozen corn kernels (or one of those small cans, well-drained).

You can add a healthy side salad if you are extra ambitious!


* Rinse beans well to remove some of the salt and much of the gas-causing sugars.

** This is where I draw the line - no one should be so lazy that they don't use fresh-ground salt and pepper! A quick trip to any home store and you can buy your own grinders, already loaded with peppercorns and sea salt.

Crock pots scare me. I want to use one so bad, but I fear burning the inside and ruining it (and the food!)...

Sounds like a great recipe, I'll have to use it sometime. All in all, I like your site a lot. Keep it up!

I have this book.. I made the stroganoff and it was so awful I had to dump the whole pot down the sink.. but this chili sounds good!

Hi there
The recipes are great, real easy to follow. But can you start adding some pictures, I'm not a chef, I really don't like to waste too much time in the kitchen and I need to have an idea of the final look. Keep up with the good job.

I thought I would leave you a recipe.

What I Had For Dinner Tonight:
medium shell noodles, cooked
frozen peas
sundried tomato paste in the tube, 2-3 squirts
olive oil
spinach herb seasoning mix
parmesan
red pepper flakes

When done draining hot noodles, throw them back into the pan. Add the tomato paste & peas, mix well. Add whatever seasonings you want, then some olive oil--just a touch. Finish off w/cheese, mix & heat til cheese is gooey.

Crockpot recipes are the best and I need help in keeping it veggie and ready after work.

This was delicious -- thx very much.
I've got the book and haven't found it so helpful but then I haven't been tailoring the recipes to common sense like you have.
Please keep the crockpot recipes coming.

Thanks for the recipe, thought I'd share my favorite:

Vegetable and Chickpea Curry

1 TB olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 cup 1/4" thick slices of carrot
1 TB curry powder
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp grated peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 serrano chile, seeded and chopped
3 cups cooked chickpeas
1 1/2 cups cubed peeled baking potato
1 cup diced green bell pepper
1 cup 1" cut green beans
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (14 ounce) can vegetable broth
3 cups fresh baby spinach
1 cup light coconut milk

1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and carrot, cover and cook 5 minutes or until tender. Add curry powder, sugar, ginger, garlic, and chile and cook for 1 minute stirring constantly.
2. Place onion mixture in a 5qt crockpot. Stir in chickpeas and the next 8 ingredients (through broth). cover and cook on high 6 hours or until vegetables are tender. Add spinach and coconut milk, stir until spinach wilts. Can be served with couscous.

To make this recipe easy I buy jars of already chopped and minced ginger and garlic. Bags of baby carrot and green beans to chop and only use 1/2 of the serrano chili. Using the whole one was too hot for me. This recipe may seem like alot of stuff and work but give it a try its quite easy and I have had rave reviews.

This sounds really yummy! I can't wait to try it. This is the first time I have come across your site! I will most definitely be back. Thank you for sharing! Kindest Regards, Jenna (www.theplantrx.com)

The recipe was good, but next time I may leave out some of the tomato paste. It was a bit too tomato-ey. Thanks for the idea - very easy to make!

By Anonymous Lisa Alexander, at 2:11 PM  

Looks great! Everything's better slow cooked.
