Chili in the crockpot

It’s finally Fall. Time to break out the crockpot.

Yummy food. No work. Lots of leftovers. What’s not to love?



  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 cooked chicken breast (optional)
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1 can garbanzo beans (pureed- they will never know it’s even in there)
  • 2 C cooked lentils
  • 1 large can pinto beans
  • 1 large can dark red kidney beans
  • Add chicken broth as needed.
  • Add chili seasoning to taste. (depends on what brand you buy)
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste


Dump it all in the crockpot. Cook on high for 4 hours, or until the onions are done.


Freeze the leftovers for quick dinners later.
