Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Cooking chili in a large slow cooker makes the preparation of chili for a crowd very easy.
Melt butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add carrots, onions and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat 4-5 minutes or until onion is softened.
Place carrot mixture, water, beans, chili powder, cumin and salt in 4- to 4 1/2-quart slow cooker; stir. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7-9 hours or until beans are tender.
Increase heat setting to High. Add all remaining ingredients except cheese. Cover; cook 60 minutes.
Top each serving with cheese.

I doubled this recipe. Instead of using 10 cups of liquid, I used 8 and that was almost too much. I also used half water and half vegetable stock. I didn't think the chili had a whole lot of flavor, I mostly tasted the sweet carrots. It was good though. It says it makes 8 servings, how many cups is a serving?
If you saute onion and garlic first and then add other vegetables like green bell pepper & carrot with all the spices before adding beans, it will taste better. You also can add grated ginger to spice up a little bit.In order to reduce the cook time and save gas/electricity, you can cook the soaked beans in pressure cooker.
I left out the jalapeno peppers and added about 3 T. chopped fresh cilantro for the last hour. Served it with cornbread, and everyone (all 6 of us) loved it!!! Thank you for sharing this!!!
Great recipe, just needed more garlic, salt & tomato paste plus some chilli flakes for that extra kick or fire whatever you want to call it. Also only put 4 cups of water and that still seems a lot had to transfer to large sauce pan and boil down to thicken after cooking in the slow cooker for nearly 11 hours. Other than that brilliant.
Loved this chili! The kids devoured it! I didn't put in the jalapenos, but it turned out great anyway. This is going to be one of my "go to" recipes.
Very easy to make and for a was very hearty. It might be a vegetarian dish but don't let that keep you from trying it, it is well worth the effort.
This recipe was farely easy to make and was flavorful, but for me personally.......too many beans :.

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
