I also used crock pot for this recipe, and everything came out great. I like my chili thick, and this was a little watery; next time I would cut the vegetable broth and tomato juice in half.

This was fabulous. Appearance was beautiful, taste was great, and was very healthy. My husband has been eating vegetarian for several months and this is one of the best recipes from LOL I've made. I prepared all ingredients the night before and put in the crock pot overnight in the fridge. Turned it on in the morning and voila'. Very easy to make. Good food!
