I hope a lot of people post recipes I do not use my crock pot as much as I would like to! This chilli recipe I do like and I no longer just use the basic recipe I add veggies like carrots, cauliflower, squash and as many different beans as I can find in the cupboard and when my hubby makes it he adds leftover chicken or beef, but here is the basic recipe that I started with.
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 10 hours
Total Time: 10 hours, 25 minutes
Yield: Serves 8-10
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 large onions, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 (14 oz.) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
2 tsp. cumin
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
10 oz. pkg. frozen corn
2 (15 oz.) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup picante or taco sauce I use the hot picante from pace.
In a heavy skillet, saute onions in the olive oil until tender, stirring frequently. Add garlic and cook 2 minutes longer. Add cumin and cayenne pepper, and whatever other spices you might like. Cook for two minutes longer.
Mix all ingredients into a 4-5 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low about 8-10 hours. If you have a newer, hotter cooking crockpot, cook on low for 6-7 hours.
