It's January, you know what that means ... Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Time to warm up ‘them bones’ with some warm, cozy, DELICIOUS crock pot eats!
Something that we love to make in the crock pot that utilizes many of the vegetables that cross our path here at Monmouth County Organic Co Op is VEGETARIAN CHILI
CROCK POT MEGA VEGGIE CHILI DUMP ‘N’ GO
The main stars of the show:
onions - white, red, or both
bell peppers (any combination of colors)
as many types of mushrooms as you can muster
**A personal favorite: Jerusalem Artichokes a.k.a. sun chokes. *Slow cooking helps break down the inulin and thus making the sun chokes more digestible
**Canned beans are best for this recipe. Dried beans are not recommended to be placed directly into the slow cooker without par boiling, as they contain high levels of phytohaemagglutinin, a lectin that can make you sick.
Can of fire roasted diced tomatoes- or Ro Tel brand diced tomatoes & green chilies
The spicy sidekicks:
salt and pepper
The optional extras:
sour cream or Greek yogurt to top
tortilla chips for scooping
avocado for top
chopped fresh tomato for top
diced scallions for top
cilantro for garnish
The final bow:
fresh lime juice
hot sauce of choice
In a slow cooker, first add canned tomatoes and their liquid to the base
Combine any combination of the main stars of the show and the spicy sidekicks- a little of this, a little of that
Cover and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours - a.k.a. Dump n Go
