Vegan Crock Pot Chili

August 12, 2011 at 4:35 pm 2 comments

This chili is so delicious and so simple to make. Thanks to my friend Christine for introducing it to me. Even the meatiest of meat eaters can’t deny how good it is! One great thing about it is you can make it as spicy as you’d like by mixing in a mild, medium, or hot chili mix, or with cayenne powder/hot spice of your liking.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 28oz canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 28oz canned petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 12oz canned corn, drained
  • 1 12oz canned black beans, drained
  • 1 12oz canned red kidney beans, drained
  • 1 12oz canned cannelli beans, drained
  • 1 packet of chili seasoning – varying levels of spicy-ness
  • 1 bag of “meat” crumbles – check ingredient label to make sure it contains no egg or milk products; in that case, it’s vegetarian
  • dash of cayenne powder, if you like it spicy


  1. Pour oil of your liking or water into skillet pan & fry chopped onion until lightly browned/soft
  2. Drain and dry the black beans, kidney beans, cannelli beans, and corn.
  3. Pour both cans of tomatoes into crockpot, followed by all beans and corn.
  4. When onion is done, add it to crockpot mixture.
  5. Pour bag of “meat” crumbles into crockpot, making sure to mix it well and break apart any large chunks of “meat”
  6. Mix in packet of chili seasoning
  7. Cook on high for 3 hours, stirring occassionally

    Sounds YUMMY! I’ve been dying to make chili cause I looove it, but I’ve been waiting for the weather to get cooler. Also, an fyi lesson that I learned after going vegan, much later than I would have liked…Morningstar crumbles aren’t vegan 😦 In fact, a lot of Morningstar stuff isn’t, which absolutely doesn’t make sense to me, but they use egg and/or dairy in a lot of their products. Booo. However, in the refrigerated section near the tofu, some stores have Smart Ground which is vegan and is really good. We had the Mexican flavor in tacos last night.

      Oh no, really?! Man that’s disappointing, but thank you so much because I never would have bothered to check. I could just as easily make it without the crumbles. It’s just kind of something I put in for the meat eaters, haha. Makes them feel better! But I’ll have to check out Smart Ground. Chili is definitely good for football season – it’s a crowd pleaser, so if you go to any football bashes, I definitely suggest it!
