Crock Pot Vegetarian Chili Recipe
Which you all know I love! The easier the vegetarian chili slow cooker recipe and the faster dinner is started the happier I am. Now if only I could find a way to chop onions without crying. One of our Facebook readers suggested goggles. I may have to try this out. I am sure right when I put on the goggles is when the UPS or Fed Ex delivery person is going to knock on the door. At least the goggles have to be better than opening the door with tears running down my face and red eyes.
This recipe cooks on low for 6-8 hours so you can prep it in the morning and it is ready when you want dinner. One thing I love about using a programmable crockpot is it automatically switches to warm so I don't have to stress that my recipes are burning while I am working.
If you are planning to cook on high then this recipe only takes 3-4 hours.
- Vegetable oil
- Garlic cloves
- Dried oregano leaves
- Diced tomatoes with juice
- Red kidney beans
- Vegetable Broth
- Green bell pepper
If you want to make this Crockpot Vegetarian Chili a bit spicy you can easily add in chili powder or adobo sauce.
I also add in pinto beans when I want to pack this chili with more beans.
If you want a creamier tomato base for your slow cooker vegetarian chili you can add in a cup or two of tomato sauce.
The best part of making crockpot vegetarian chili is you can feel free to really adapt the recipe to your preferences. Some people don't want to add the onions because they don't like them and that works great. Other people prefer olive oil over vegetable oil and that works great.
- Shredded Cheese
- Sour Cream
Vegetable chopper - This is a huge time saver for chopping veggies.
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time. This helps make sure your dinner cooks perfectly and you don't have to stress about what time it is going to be done.
