The slow cooker is back! This time, it’s chili! I decided to use dried beans because they are so cheap. I actually made a whole pot of chili for about 5 bucks. It takes a little planning but using dried beans is way more economical than canned.
The night before, soak the beans in water. I used 1.5 cup of Great Northern beans and 1.5 cup of Red beans in 6 cups of water. No salt in the water! It ruins the integrity of the bean (seriously).
When you wake up they will look like this.
Add a big can of tomato and some stock.
Turn it on low, put the lid on, and go to work.
Appetizer was Peach Salsa (Yum!) and chips from Trader Joes.
I added a dollop of Greek Yogurt. Nom Nom!
