Slow Cooker Chili
This was another meal made in the slow cooker for a busy day. It was kind of spur of the moment decision the night before. My chili usually has zucchini, yellow squash and mushrooms in it, but I didn't have all of those things on hand this time. I used different colored bell peppers, tomatoes, tomato sauce, onions, shallots, pinto beans, black beans and kidney beans. I didn't measure any of the spices, but I threw in some cumin, chili powder and red pepper flakes. I had about half a cup of brown rice medley left in the cabinet, so I cooked it up in my rice cooker to go with the chili. It was delicious and there are plenty of leftovers to have for lunch!
