Vegan Crock-Pot Chili: Who Knew There Would Be A Shortage of Chili Powder?

When the going gets tough, the tough make chili. The tough are also lazy hence the crock pot. Many of us are finding ourselves at home where the highlight for the day is scoring a good time for instacart to deliver groceries….one week from now. So we stick with the basics ordering foods that have a high probability of being in stock. Who knew there would be a shortage of crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and chili powder??

Our vegan crock-pot chili is easy prep, nutritious, and absolutely delicious. You just toss things together, not too mentally challenging but that’s what I personally need – no thinking.
