anyway, i've been wanting to do some sort of chili in our crockpot- because crockpots are awesome. but i had never even made chili (crazy, i know) and didn't really care to look up a complicated recipe. so i grabbed what was in my cupboard and threw this together. according to my husband, it's the best meal i've ever made. and, trust him when he says this- he's the first person to chime up with the "oh, maybe next time you could add this" comments so..
you will need:
- 1 28oz can organic diced tomatoes in their juice
- 1 can organic black beans
- 1 can organic kidney beans
- 1 can organic great northern beans
- 1 onion
- 1 red pepper
- 1 green pepper
- 4-5 whole garlic cloves
- cayenne pepper
- red chili pepper flakes
- pink himalayan sea salt
cut onion, red pepper, and green pepper into bite sized pieces. combine first four ingredients with the onions, peppers, and garlic cloves in a crockpot. season to taste. cook on low for 8+ hours. enjoy!
*optional: we had leftover rice from the previous evening. after the chili had cooked, i poured the cooked rice into the crockpot and let it soak for about an hour or two on the warm setting. dee-licious.
