drew bought a slow-cooker a few months ago, but i hadn't tried using it until this past weekend. on saturday morning, i threw a bunch of simple ingredients in, set it on low for 8 hours and ended up with a flavorful vegetarian chili. it couldn't have been easier!
slow-cooker chili adapted from here
1 yellow onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 28-ounce can organic fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 15.5-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 15.5-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup water
add all ingredients to slow-cooker and set on low for 7 or 8 hours. taste and season with salt as needed.
