Crockpot Two Bean Veggie Chili

Crockpot Two Bean Veggie Chili (3)  HappyFitMama.com

Despite using my Crockpot quite often, I have only shared one recipe for it on HFM. And it wasn’t even for a meal! (Crockpot Apple Butter if you’re interested).

What’s up with that?

In all honesty, the majority of my Crockpot meals are kind of like an everything but the kitchen sink deal. I’ll just grab and toss whatever remotely sounds like it would work together. No measuring. No nothing. The following chili is just that. I make a different variation of it every single time.  If I feel like making Ron happy, I’ll add in shredded chicken or turkey. I’ll be wild and crazy and only do one bean instead of two. I’ll add greens, carrots, broccoli. It’s a very versatile base.

That’s the beauty of it!

This makes A LOT. My kids will eat a deconstructed version but mostly it’s only Ron and I eating it. We always have leftovers for multiple days afterwards. Which is a good thing. Second day chili is even better than the first in my opinion.

Enjoy!

Do you use a Crockpot often?

Do you follow recipes or just dump and toss?

  1. I use the crockpot about every other week and it does seem like a “dump and go” kind of meal. Oddly, I had a bunch of readers just ask me to do a crockpot recipe roundup. Guess everyone is trying to get inspired.

  2. I love just throwing things in the crockpot! That is the best way to go with what you have on hand! Chilli is a runners perfect meal if plenty of carbs are added (or put underneath on the plate). I enjoyed chilli earlier this week and find it a great warming meal to have after a chilly evening run. Thanks for sharing your version! Given me some new ideas for adding ingredients!

  3. Popped this in the crockpot just now — will be ready in time for lunch! Thanks for the recipe!

    I use my crockpot as much as possible – especially on nights when we will get home late and I need supper on the table ASAP when we get in the door. Lasagna is a favorite. Also make a quick fajita filling: throw some chicken tenders, corn/bean salsa or regular salsa, peppers and onions and it’s ready in just a few hours to shred and put into tortillas. The leftovers in the bottom are the perfect base for a bowl of soup the next day (may need to add a little more broth).
