You love crockpot meals? So do we. It’s so nice to put ingredients in the crockpot and come back later to a beautiful feast. We love this vegetarian chili because it’s yummy, it’s healthy, and it’s easy. We love using Bob’s Red Mill’s Orca Beans (pictured) because of their beautiful appearance and yummy flavor. However, you do have do take a little precook time to soften the beans. Feel free to use them or to use other canned beans already processed. They’re great, too!
Here are some of our other favorite soups, both in the crockpot and on the stovetop:
