Vegan Spicy Black Bean Chilli

As mentioned in an earlier blog, I am doing a 30 day Vegan Challenge. I wanted to share a vegan black bean chilli recipe that I have created using my favorite cooking device THE CROCK POT!! Below will be all the ingredients I used to make this chilli. Hope you Love It!!!

  • Ingredients:
  • 12 Roma Tomatoes ( cut in fourths)
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 stalks of greens onions chopped
  • 2 serrano peppers chopped
  • 1 cup of black bean ( can be from a can, I boiled them in water til soften which would be about an hour
  • 1/2 cup of water ( or vegetable stock)
  • 3 Tbsp of chilli powder
  • 3 Tbsp of cumin powder
  • Half of a savon packet ( latin seasoning can from farmer marke
  • Goya ( latin season can get from local grocery store)
  • black pepper

  • First I put in the extra virgin oil, green onions, garlic and serrano peppers in the crock pot.
  • Then the tomatoes, 1/2 cup of water and the drained black beans.
  • Next was all the seasonings : chillin powder, cumin, savon, goya, black pepper
  • After putting in all the ingredients in the crock pot I get a big spoon and mix everything together, from the bottom up. So the every ingredient has some seaoning on it
  • I put the crock pot on high for about 4 hours ( or you can put on low for 8 hours)
  • Voila You have delicious black bean chilli packed with flavor

What I LOVE about this chilli is that it will last for about week ( meal prep) and it goes with any thing. I can eat this by itself, with chips, in a taco etc ( in the picture I paired it with white rice). AND ITS GOOD FOR YOU!!! What more can you ask for!!!
