Black Bean Chili is both vegan and gluten free. This is a one dish wonder. Black bean chili recipe is so easy it will become a family favorite. I make this recipe often and is perfect when we’re in a hurry. Remember to share this delicious chili with your family and friends.
When making any recipe it is best to use as many fresh ingredients as possible. If fresh isn’t available dry is always a good option. Dried herbs have a stronger punch, so remember, less is more. If you’re not sure about how much you’re adding, taste test as you go.
I usually don’t have time to cook up dried beans or dice all the tomatoes myself. I typically buy my ingredient canned. Pay attention to the ingredients on the can and try to find non-GMO and BP free canned options.
Black bean chili is an easy crockpot recipe. You can make this easy recipe the night before and heat it up throughout your busy day. It will be ready to go by the time dinner rolls around.
I love to add toppings and get creative with my chili. Some of my favorites are a side of brown rice, mashed cauliflower, or mashed potatoes. Try adding sides you wouldn’t think of, the possibilities are endless.
I love to add a gluten free beer to chili to give it an earthy flavor, and I get to drink the rest, a great perk!
