“Crock..tober” is here, and Three- Bean Mega Veggie Chili the best way to welcome the cold weather. Although it has been raining for two days, and the chill of Fall is in the air, chili warms every part of your body. First, and foremost, it brews in the crockpot, and who doesn’t LOVE chili at a tailgate party?
First, using he crockpot is simple. For example, you can fill the crock pot the night before, and keep it overnight until you are ready to start it in the morning. Or, if you have time in the morning, you can throw it together in 20 minutes or less.
Personally, I like to chop all the veggies the night before, and throw it all together in 5 minutes in the morning. Regardless of your prepping style, using the crockpot allows the chili to brew while you work.
Although chili recipes are a dime a dozen, the ones that stick out to me are the ones with a variety of flavors and as many veggies as I can pack in. I also like to use a variety of beans to get a variety of textures.
This chili has three different kinds of beans, and ten different vegetables, so one bowl provides everything you could possibly need in the nutritional spectrum.
Furthermore, if you use a 7 quart or larger crockpot, you can feed a hungry group of 12, or freeze the rest for when you want it again.
