Vegetable Chili |Fall Favorite

 

Happy fall!  We just got a cool front and I hope it lasts!!! This recipe is a fall staple in our house.  It is super easy to fix and will be a perfect meal for those chilly nights!  What I love about the chili is it is full of all the veggies, but you can also add meat if you prefer.  I have made it both ways and it is delicious!

Crock pot meals are life savers in our house.  I usually try to plan 1-2 crock pot meals a week, to give me a break and also lets me focus on my kids more in the evenings, especially since our time change gives us such a small amount of time outside after school.
