Slow-Cooker/Crock-Pot Vegetarian Chili Recipe


  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 28-ounce can fire-roasted diced tomatoes or ~10-12 fresh tomatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 15.5-ounce can black beans, rinsed
  • 1 15.5-ounce can kidney beans, rinsed or cook 3/4 cup dry kidney beans
  • 1 medium sweet potato (about 8 ounces), peeled and cut into 1⁄2-inch pieces
  • optional: sour cream, sliced scallions, and tortilla chips, for serving


In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker or Crock-Pot, combine the onion, bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, cumin, cocoa, cinnamon, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Add the tomatoes (and their liquid), beans, sweet potato, and 1 cup of water.

Cover and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender and the chili has thickened, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total recipe time).

Serve the chili with the sour cream, scallions, and tortilla chips. (Original Recipe)
