Where’s the beef? NOT in this fantastic Vegetarian Chili..

photoNot going to lie.. I made this on a whim.. just wanted something warm and hearty and … kind of easy .. What I got was FABULOUS…

Its this simple..

  • 1 box of trader joes black bean latin style soup (19 oz)
  • 8 oz  trader joes vegetable stock (in a box) low sodium
  • 2 cans trader joes organic garbanzo beans – 15 oz ea.. rinsed/drained
  • 2 cans trader joes organic kidney beans – 15 oz ea .. rinsed/drained
  • 2 cans  trader joes vegetarian baked beans – 15 oz DO NOT rinse use liquid in can too
  • 2 cans trader joes organic diced tomato (no sugar added ) use entire can with the ‘puree’
  • 2 cans traer joes organic (no sugar added ) whole kernel  corn  15 oz ..rinsed/drained
  • 1 medium  whole sweet onion  – chopped small
  • 1 green bell pepper – chopped small
  • 6 stalks of celery – chopped small
  • 2 cloves of garlic – chopped small
  • 1 .5 tbsp chili powder  ( or to taste .. but this is what I used)
  • 1 tbsp each   dried parsley , dried oregano and dried basil

ADD it all in your slow cooker and turn on high for for 3 hours or till beans are soft.. I had it on for 3 hours.. and it was just right.

Feel free to cut in half.. I made enough for an army.. or just to throw in the freezer for another snowy/rain day.

UMMM.. did I say it was easy??    ENJOY..

NOTE:  I chose to use all trader joe brand products.. for a two reasons.. .. I was in Trader Joes when I  decided to make the Chili ( inspired by the black bean soup and beans)  and also.. when I questioned the manager about their labeling.. (looking for GMO FREE) , he assured me that if the label says Trader Joes.. it is assured GMO free..   win/win.

Create a great day !
