Crockpot Chickpea Chili (Vegetarian)
My favorite season of the year is fall. I love the smell of the fall leaves and especially love apple picking, drinking cider and eating cinnamon donuts. The other thing I love in fall is chili, like this vegetarian Crockpot Chickpea Chili .
It is the perfect comfort or “football game” food. I make a big batch and my husband and I eat a nice bowl topped with cheddar cheese alongside one of our favorite beers. While my husband prefers meat in his chili, I try to make a batch every once in a while that is meatless. I don’t think you have to put meat in chili for it to be satisfying and delicious!
While many of us think of chili as a cold weather meal, I make it in the summer months as well. This is the time of year that the farmers market, or my garden, offers the best peppers…..
Ok, enough pictures of my garden! My Chickpea Chili not only provides me with an easy Crockpot dinner for a busy week but also with leftovers for lunch (bonus). My husband went back for seconds, which is how I know it’s a winner in my house! He really liked the cinnamon which is a new twist on our normal chili. The cinnamon and poblano peppers add a nice warm and sweet flavor to the chili.
