2-3 cup cooked beans (whatever type of bean you like)
1 28oz. can of crushed tomatoes
1 28oz. can of diced tomatoes
2 cup chopped bell peppers (can use frozen)
1 cup textured vegetable protein granules
1 cup veggie broth
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup chickpea flour
2 cloves of garlic, minced
canned chipotle peppers and adobo sauce
garnish: cilantro, sprinkle of uncheeze, tortillas or chips, etc.
Add the cold water to the chickpea flour, and mix until "dissolved."
Add the chickpea water and all other ingredients to the crockpot.
I like to add one whole chipotle pepper and a couple of teaspoons of the adobo sauce, but I like a spicy chili, so start off with just a bit depending on your preferences.
Cook on medium-low for at least 2 hours, or as long as 9. If you cook for a very long time, you may need more water or broth.
Season with salt and/or more chipotles or adobo sauce.
To serve, you can garnish with anything you like, including cilantro, a sprinkle of some soy cheese, tortillas, chips, anything you like.
