Veggie Packed Chili

This chili recipe is perfect for fall and packed with tons of vegetables that taste and smell amazing. Plus it’s a crock pot/ slow cooker recipe so all you really need to do it dump the ingredients in, give it a stir and walk away! There’s nothing better than coming back into the kitchen and being welcomed by the warm aromas of a delicious meal that is waiting for you.

I topped my veggie chili with some plain greek yogurt, diced avocado and some more cilantro. You can also add cheese, tortilla chips or any other of your favorite chili toppings to make it complete. I also paired it with some of my favorite beer bread and the combo was perfect! I’m planning on sharing a recipe for that soon too, so be on the lookout!
