Slow cookers are great for busy days when you just want to start your meal and forget about it until it’s done. I have also become a big fan of using my crock pot in the Summer when the weather is hot. My family can have a good meal and I don’t have to heat up the whole house by turning on the oven and don’t have to work up a sweat while cooking over a hot stove.
My Slow Cooker Vegan Chili is a twist on the typical non-meat tomato based chili. The Ketit mango and citrus add unique flavor to this dish. Thanks to Melissa’s Produce for the ingredients.
