Three Chile Mole Chili (5 minute dinner!)

I needed to get to the shop.  We were loading things into the car.  We weren’t getting home until kind of late.  We don’t have the money to keep eating out.  What to do?  Throw everything into a large crockpot and run out the door, of course!  We came home to the smells of savory hot chili wafting through the house welcoming us in.  Doug opened us each a Vanilla Porter and I poured us a few bowls of flavorful chili.  The prep time was about five minutes.  Well worth it, I tell you.

Into a large crockpot, or half the recipe for a regular sized one, add the following:

1 cup of dried pinto beans

1 cup of dried kidney beans

1 package of meatless ground (we like Quorn brand…so good, non-GMO)

1 jar of 505 green chili

1 large can or jar of diced tomatoes

1 quart of broth

Then add more or less:

2 teaspoons of Mole seasoning (it’s cocoa and chile and amazing)

1 teaspoon of garlic powder

1 teaspoon of cumin

1 teaspoon of red chile powder (New Mexican preferably)

1/2 teaspoon of chipotle powder

(I get my spices from Savory)

Now put it on low and run out the door!  Eight hours later your are boss of dinner.

    I think I’m going to steal this recipe, minus the Mole. We’re just not fans.

    Thanks for the meatless ground suggestion. I’ve used Gardein, and we like it, but I’m always looking to try something different to see if we like it more.

      It’s a good recipe to change up. It is so versatile! It will be good for you being so busy moving!
