No-Fail Veggie Chili Crockpot Recipe

written by Head Health Nutter January 16, 2009

Crockpots are probably one of man’s greatest inventions. It’s the tool that turns fabulous dinner creations into rice krispies squares: scrumptious delights that are super easy to make with practically no cleanup.

Add chili, which is best served slowcooked, and you got a miracle meal!

Here’s the recipe for the  (not too spicy) jackpot chili I cooked up last weekend, which was such a hit this week that I ended up trading lunches with a colleague!

Please come back to tell us what you thought of it!
