3 Bean Chili (Slow Cooker Recipe)
Growing up, we’d usually make this in the crockpot on Saturday night and cook it overnight to take to the church potluck the next day. It’s super easy, cheap and yummy! Plus, it makes the whole house smell delicious as it slow-cooks!
Fills one 5qt. slow-cooker
1 1/3 C. pinto beans, dry
1 1/3 C. great northern beans, dry
1 1/3 C. small red beans or kidney beans, dry
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 T. chili powder
2 t. oregano
1 t. salt
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 Anaheim peppers, cut in large slices to season (do not eat)
2 T. apple cider vinegar
2 T. Braggs liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
8 C. Water
1 lb. cooked, seasoned (I usually cook mine with onion powder and garlic powder) ground turkey (optional)
Rinse beans and check for rocks! Add all ingredients to slow-cooker. Cook overnight on low, or on high for 6-8 hours. Remove Anaheim peppers. Enjoy!
Note: Feel free to substitute different varieties of beans. I use whatever I have on hand. In the picture, I used only black beans.
