Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cover and soak beans overnight in cold water- Drain.
  2. Put beans in slow cooker.
  3. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil or a small amount of liquid; saute onion and garlic until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add bell pepper, potatoes, chili powder and the cumin.
  5. Continue cooking, stirring frequently for about three minutes; transfer to slow cooker.
  6. Add rice and water or broth; cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or until chili is thick and rice and beans are tender.
  7. Because the acid in tomatoes supposedly keep uncooked beans from becoming tender, add the tomatoes after the beans are cooked- for the last hour or so of cooking (But if you want, you can add them when you add the bell pepper and potatoes).
  8. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  9. Garnish with cheese if desired.
