Hi friends! The temporary drop in temperature reignited my fire for a slow-cooked meal. Enter: Vegetarian Chipotle White Chili. We cooked this chili using our crock pot, but the recipe can easily be made on the stovetop! I had a can of Fire Roasted Tomatoes with Chipotle that we won in Clean Eating Chelsey’s giveaway, so I decided to use them in this recipe to give it a little kick!

  • 4 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 t. Cumin

  1. Soak beans overnight in at least 6 cups of water (or use the quick-soak method).
  2. Sautee your chopped onions in 2 tsp. oil, or until onions are soft and have a bit of color.
  3. Turn on your crock pot (low- set for 8 hours; high- set for 6 hours). Add your Beans, Water (or vegetable broth), Bell Pepper, Sautéed Onions, Garlic and Spices. Let simmer for 6-8 hours, or until beans are tender.
  4. Add in your Tomatoes, Salt and Pepper, simmer for another hour.

*We cooked our beans in water and we added enough vegetable bullion AFTER the beans were tender (at Step 4, after 6 hours of cooking). The salt in the bullion interferes with the softening of the beans, so we just added it in at the end!

  1. Won 2nd place out of 20 in a chili cook off today using this recipe! I cheated and used a can of northern and a can of pinto instead of dry beans. I also shredded an 8 oz block of cheese ( cheddar with hot pepper). Thanks for the great recipe!!
