First Bite of Summer or Last Bite of Winter?

Add into the crock-pot on high . . .

  • two or three fresh diced tomatoes
  • a can of diced tomatoes
  • half an onion
  • a few cloves of garlic
  • salt, pepper
  • the beans (of course)
  • a packet or so of chili seasoning
  • enough water to cover it all

. . . and about two hours later, you have a nicely multi-textured, meat-less bowl of chili.  I'm a big fan of toppings, so mine also gets a big spoonful each of guacamole and sour cream, a dash of vinegar, a handful of cheese, a few grilled onions, and some pretty blue corn chips.
