I love using my crock pot! It’s so convenient, just add your ingredients, come back later and your meal is finished! This crock pot spicy vegan chili is super easy to make and is very filling…and spicy! I try to use fresh ingredients but today I decided that I’m going to make this chili as fast and easy as I can for everyone who doesn’t have a lot of time to prepare meals from scratch.
I basically went to my cupboards and started pulling out cans of organic food that I thought would make a great meal, and this is what I came up with. You can add different vegetables to your chili that suits your family’s likes. At times, I have just thrown things together to prepare a meal, and the results were fantastic! This is one of those meals.
You could also change up the recipe a bit and add in some quinoa or brown rice. The last time I made this chili, I did add quinoa and it was super good! The health benefits of quinoa are wonderful, so if you haven’t tried it yet, add some to your chili when you make this recipe.
This is definitely spicy so if you want to make this a bit less spicy, just cut down on the cajun seasoning and less jalapeños.

Both Slap Ya Mama and Hoppin'John Black Eyed Peas I bought at Walmart.
I wanted to thicken up my chili, so I added 2 tablespoons of whole wheat flour to a small bowl and whisked it with 1/2 cup of almond milk. Then I added it to the chili to thicken up the liquid.
