Healthy Vegetarian Chili

Sloooow cook spicy vegetarian chili

1 tbsp olive oil

1 large yellow onion, chopped

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp chili powder

28 oz can crushed tomatoes

2 cans (15 oz ea.) black beans, drained and rinsed

1 cup water

1 4 oz can diced green chiles, drained

salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic; cover and cook until just softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chili powder and cook about 30 seconds longer.Transfer the mixture to a slow cooker. Add the tomatoes, beans, water, and chiles; season with salt and pepper, cover and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours.Great to come home to after a long day and you don't want to cook. You could also serve this over rice and topped with diced avocado and sour cream.

I love my slow cooker, in fact I would use it everyday as I am more of a morning person and am usually uninteresed in cooking a good dinner in the evening.
