Easy Crock Pot Lentil Chili
A super simple dump and go Crock Pot Lentil Chili that is thick and hearty. Veggie packed and prepped in about 10 minutes. Slow cooked for ultimate flavor and spice. A cozy and filling meal and perfect with all your favorite toppings!
Main Course, Soup
green pepper diced
can or 2 cups kidney beans
precooked and rinsed
can or 2 cups diced tomatoes
cans tomato sauce (15 oz.)
I prefer smoked paprika
2 - 3
crushed red pepper
Add all ingredients except for the tomato paste into slow cooker. I often start with 1 ½ of the tomato sauce cans and then add more if desired in the end.
Cover and set to high heat for 4-6 hours or until lentils are tender or on high heat for about 6 hours.
About 15-30 minutes before serving, add in the tomato paste. This will thicken the chili. If it becomes too thick, add more broth to balance.
Serve with your favorite chili toppings!
You could use precooked lentils to make this recipe much quicker! You would only have to cook for about 2-4 hours.
