Spicy Vegetable Chili


Recipe Description
Forget anemic veggie chili. This stuff is hearty, spicy, and GOOD!!​
Preparation Steps:
I didn't have celery, so I didn't add it. Also, I don't like kidney beans, so I used chili beans instead.​
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
30 min [+cooking time]​
Ingredients:
2 large onions, chopped
2 c. medium green sweet peppers, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced
2 28 oz cans diced tomatoes, undrained
2 15-16 oz cans dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 15-16 oz cans pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 15 oz can whole kernel corn, drained
1 c. water
6 oz tomato paste
2 T. chili powder
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. ground cumin
1 t. dried oregano, crushed
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1 t. hot pepper sauce​
Serves:
Approx 12 servings​
Directions:
In a 6 or 7 qt slow cooker, stir together all ingredients.
Cover, cook on low for 9-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours.

**This recipe can also be used for Cincinnati-Style Chili and Noodles!! Reserve 6 cups of chili, then add into that 1/2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped; 1/2 t. ground cinnamon; 1/2 t. ground allspice; 1/8 t. ground cloves. Serve over cooked spaghetti noodles with cheese and onion for garnish!**​

Sounds really good! I would just sub the Worcestershire sauce because of the anchovies, but I bet my family would like this. Thank you. :)

:bump: I am making this today, and it smells SO good!

I think Madhen has a crockpot as big as my car because mine wouldn't hold everything! :lol:

The only major changes I made was using dried beans instead of canned and used black beans instead of pintos.

The nice thing about it is that you don't have to be perfect. It would taste just fine without the corn. Or you could add rice or pasta instead. I am making it today, and I am actually out of canned corn, but I always have frozen corn on hand for the chickens, so I am going to steal some of theirs!

You will not regret it. I've made it about four times now. I make up a big batch (and yes, it will fill up your crockpot), then freeze it in single-serving sizes. I especially like it on top of pasta.

i'm going to the store soon to get corn. i plan on making it with lentils instead on beans since i dont eat beans. so i'll have garlic, corn, chili powder, tomato past and lentils.

Did anyone by chance save the recipe for this? Am hoping to make it again, but I don't have the original recipe anymore, and it is still MIA in Frugal Village.

Yes, yes, yes!!! Thank you, Gabe, for getting the cookbook up and going again! I thought I had lost this recipe to the sands of time!
