colourful crockpot chili

ah, chili. i only make chili a few times a year, but whenever i do, i kick myself for not making it more often. i loved this combination of black and white beans, sprinkled with some yummy yellow corn. while it was stewing, i was in awe with how awesomely colourful all the ingredients looked together. it was a bright culinary uplift in the drab and dreary winter.

  • 3 cups cooked black beans
  • 2 cups whole corn
  • 1 cup navy beans
  • 3 cups diced tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 4 oz. can green chilies
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cumin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
toss all ingredients into a crock pot and let stew for 4-6 hours on medium. stir occasionally. the heat level of this chili is a mild medium, so add jalapenos or crushed red pepper for more kick.

I've been thinking about chili a lot lately. It's the best food at this time of the year and I crave beans all the time.

the green chilies sound like such a great addition to chili, miss. v - i'm going to have to try it out. what an awesome idea! i love that you used black and white beans, too. chili is one tasty way to stay warm, and i love that leftovers taste even better the next day!

Gorgeous! What an awesome hearty meal, I love all the delicious veggies you've put in there. I need to make this while it is still kinda cold here.

I eat chili once a week. I have no recipe now, it's just instinct, and I love it every time. Except for when the spice lid fell off. That was upsetting! But I'm always n the lookout for new beans, or even pulses, available in my supermarket that I can mix in. It's so hearty, and incredibly guilt-free!

Looks delicious, perfect for days like the one we are having today, snowy and cold...

I am with you 100% - pb, chocolate, and bananas are orgasmic! I really wish I could live on those 3 things and still be healthy...sadly, that isn't possible. :( Haha!

I'm the same way with chili - don't make it very often, and always think I should make it again soon. This looks great!

A crockpot is just about the only kitchen gadget that I DON'T have- Arg! Perhaps it's worth experimenting with a stovetop modification of this recipe.
