(Should-be) Award Winning

Before I jump into my fantastic veggie chili recipe (which I still think should have won *wink, wink*), I must tell you all about a predicament I am in.

So, you all know that I have extremely curly hair.. yes?  Well, that hair of mine get a little crazy if it doesn’t get treated the right way.  i.e. the right products and such.  I do not spend much on hair products.  I mean, I use LA Looks Sport gel.  BUT I have a system that works.  For the past month, I have not been able to find my Tresemme Curl Locking Spray.  I ran out of it a week or so ago, and I have been a fur ball.

Lucky for me, my daddy saved the day!  He was at Wal-mart back home today, so I had him run through the hair isle.  He found my Curl Locking Spray!!  I had him buy everything that was there!  I now have 8 bottles… at least I own them.  They are just in Tennessee.  Looks like I’m going to be a fur ball until I see Daddy again.  Road trip??

Anywho, I was really excited about that.  Just thought I would share.

Without further ado, here is the should-be award winning chili recipe!

Vegetarian Chili

  • 3 cans of beans of choice (or 6 cups cooked)
  • 2 cans of tomatoes (I use no salt added)
  • 2 small/medium onions, chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 jalapenos, chopped (leave the seeds out)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3-4 cups of vegetable broth
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste

Rinse and drain beans- unless using chili beans.  You want the spices out of that!  Chop onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, and garlic.  Dump all ingredients into crockpot.  Use 3 cups of broth for a thicker chili or 4 for a more liquid consistency.  I use 4 so I can add in corn bread or crackers.  

Cook on high for 4-6 hours or overnight 8-10 hours on low.  I put mine in before I went to bed and let it cook all night and morning until it was time to put it out for the cook-off.

This is something easy to throw into the crockpot in the morning and let it cook all day while you are at work!

Hope you all enjoyed this beautiful Monday!
