This was much better than I expected it to be.
I used a lot less olive oil because 1/4c wasn't necessary and I added
corn and ground angus beef, but this would also be good with shredded chicken. I only cooked it for 4 hours on low as I didn't want the squash to get too mushy - 6 hours would have been too long for my slowcooker. I served it with avocado, greek yogurt (sourcream sub), and tortilla
chips. I will be making this again. The family loved it.
If you leave out the spices and jalapeno of course you are going to change the taste - it's missing the most important ingredients. Had you followed the recipe you probably wouldn't have felt it was missing anything. You gave a 3 star rating to a recipe you made up and then posted the review here. That doesn't even make sense.
Delicious! Just ate leftovers of this last night and it was amazing, even better than fresh out of the slow cooker. I added a little more salt and some garlic salt to the leftovers, and sprinkled with a mexican blend shredded cheese. Outstanding! For a novice cook trying to eat healthier, this recipe was easy to follow and not too time-consuming to prep. The six hours in the slow cooker is a little long, so I definitely recommend you start cooking late morning/early afternoon if you want it for dinner. But highlight recommend--it's a great, hearty vegetarian chili that makes great leftovers! I also halved this recipe and it worked great.
Really good! Left out the jalapeños, substituted one can of black beans for kidney beans and cooked on stove top for about an hour. Topped with sour cream, scallions and cheddar cheese. Made a day ahead and reheated for a dinner party...huge success.
Super yummy vegetarian chili! Has a great "meaty" quality to it, and it's even better the next day. I only used 1 jalepeno (we have little kids in the house) and it was not spicy at all (easy to fix with a little hot sauce). Try this recipe, you won't be disappointed!
So yummy. I cut the recipe in half, so I wouldn't have much leftover. It was so good, that I made another half batch the following week. I cooked mine on the stove. It turned out thick and flavorful. It's a keeper.
