    Cheap and everyone liked it! Perfect for group meals in the age of Coronavirus quarantining

    This was delicious. It definitely needs closer to 5.5-6 hours on low in the slow cooker, as the potatoes were still hard after 4.5 hours. The leftovers the next day we’re also excellent. I will definitely make this again.

    Very hearty meal. Nothing about it really stands out though so I think toppings like avocado, cilantro, cheese, and/or sour cream are necessary.

    Delicious and filling. My boyfriend (who is not vegan) loved it as well. I just added a little more cayenne and chili powder for an extra kick.

    Omg this is essential! Freezes wonderfully as well. I have made this 6-7 times now, I mix up the veggies as needed, add chips on the side, or top with sour cream/plain Greek yogurt. It’s impossible to mess up. Don’t be scared of the amount of seasoning, I have super white taste buds it is no where near being to strongly flavored. Also the only thing you dirty is a cutting board.

    Very enjoyable soup. I cooked on low for five hours and sweet Potato wasn’t done so had to turn it up to high for the last couple of hours. Otherwise we ate it up

    We love this chili! I make it for my family at least a few times a month while we have colder weather. As is, it was a bit too spicy for my kiddos, so we tried it with half of the chili powder and cayenne and it was perfect for even our 10 month old. A good recipe is one you can adjust when you need to, we've made it with all kinds of combinations of different beans, and veggies. Its great with some Traders Joe's Beef-less ground beef added too!!

    It turned out fine. I thought it would have been a little bit thicker, like chili, but it came out more likes stew. It was fine.

    This is seriously the most amazing chili ever, it has great flavor and isn't too spicy to those of you who aren't fans of spiciness! and it's so easy to make!! and most importantly boyfriend approved :)

    I omitted all the spicy ingredients so my son could eat it. I also omitted sweet potatoes and corn, and used red kidneys and white kidneys. It was great! A little more salt and some homemade crackers!
