It's Christmas Eve, and before I take most of the week off to spent time with my family I thought I'd share a recipe that may be perfect for anyone during this busy season.  Slow Cooker Easy Three Bean Chili comes from Kitchen Treaty, a creative blog that shows how vegetarians and meat eaters can adapt recipes to work for both.

You can have the vegetarian version of this chili in the slow cooker in minutes, and it cooks unattended for 8 hours while you're busy having holiday fun.  Then if you want to make some or all of the chili with ground beef, add that at the end and cook 30 minutes more.  Kare loved the vegetarian version and reports that her meat-eating man declared that his chili with ground beef was "perfect."

And no matter what you're cooking over the holidays, I hope you have a wonderful relaxing holiday with your family and friends!

  1. Great idea to use one chili for both vegetarians and meat-eaters! I'll have to remember this idea of adding meat at the end.

  2. Lydia, I am intrigued by this blog which has a vegetarian and meat-lovers version of nearly every dish.

  3. Thank you so much for featuring my recipe! I love, love, love Slow Cooker From Scratch.

  4. Thanks Kare! (And I love your blog, so we're even.)
