Crock Pot Sundays

This is what we are eating for a simple meal this weekend:  Easiest Crock Pot Chili

It's so easy I just made up the recipe on the spot, but it could always be doctored up more!   If I had more veggies on hand they would have gone into the pot too.  But alas, we are running short on those today.

 I am ALL about the crock pot in the fall and winter.   I really hope my obsession passes on to you so I can creep on your recipes.  It's so dang quick, healthy, and you have a hot dinner waiting for you.  Why would you NOT use one??  I'm obsessed.

Easiest Crock Pot Chili

1 14.5 oz can kidney beans, drained
1 14.5 oz can black beans, drained
1 14.5 oz can pinto beans, drained
1 14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 14.5 oz can corn
1 cup of sorta sliced/cut into small pieces leftover Italian sausage in our fridge

1-2 bell peppers diced
2 cloves garlic
1 small onion, diced
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil

Easiest Directions Ever...Literally: 
Uhh...throw it all in the pot.  Stir.  Turn crock pot to low for 6 hours.  Eat later.  Enjoy.

A peek into the pot!  Colorful, filling, and flavorful.  Oh yeah...and EASY!!!

We top ours with shredded cheese, some sour cream, and scoop it out with blue corn tortilla chips!

Addition Ideas:
Throw in some cooked ground beef,  crumble vegetarian "meat", sliced mushrooms, diced potatoes, diced carrots, some jalapenos for a kick, garbanzo beans, diced celery, a sprinkle of paprika, ground turkey, serve with corn bread, top with crackers, whip up quesadillas to go with, serve alongside guacamole and chips, and the list goes on and on!!

Pick a few new additions and sides next time you make this for a practically new meal!
