Vegetarian Crockpot Chili

Hi, Christina from Food Apparel back for a visit. You know, Fall is upon us. The smell of pumpkins and spice is in the air…..and nice cozy autumn soups. I love soup, so this is always a welcomed season around our place!

My life (as always) has been a tornado. So, I often turn to the crockpot in these moments of desperation. I wanted to share with you today this delicious crockpot chili. It is so versatile! Bob’s Red Mill just sent me some fun grains and beans to play around with (yep, that’s how I play – living on the EDGE!).

I could not wait to make something with these Orca Heritage Beans. They are so beautiful. I think they kind of look like dairy cows, personally. ūüėČ

This chili recipe is a simple go-to version that I just love. If you want to have it heartier with meat, easily brown some ground beef, ground turkey, or steak medallions¬†and throw it in as well. We kept this version vegetarian so that we could still celebrate and use up the end of summer veggies and keep it on the lighter side, but really the sky’s the limit.
