(this recipe is pretty good and I'd only make small changes)

This vegetarian chili can be made on the stove top or in a slow cooker. I would crock pot this for sure, for the dry beans.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients
(I would change all of these canned beans to dry (bulk) beans; usually lower in sodium, healthier, etc. I've included another link below regarding this.)

1 (15 oz) can pinto beans - drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz) can black beans - drained and rinsed

1 (15 oz) can light red kidney beans - drained and rinsed
1 (15oz) can dark red kidney beans - drained and rinsed
(If you home can, all the better: I'm not at this stage yet)
2 (28 oz) cans crushed tomatoes
1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes

2 cups celery, diced

1 small red bell pepper, diced
1 small yellow bell pepper, diced
1 medium red onion, diced (I'm allergic, so I'd use green onions)

2 T ground cumin
3 T garlic powder
4 T chili powder

Dry vs. canned beans:

    if the meat was wild and fresh, my ds would be fine with it, but no hormone pumped meat for us.
