Crockpot Bean & Lentil Chili

This recipe not only makes your house smell amazing, but tastes good too. It’s vegan friendly, and makes great leftovers for the week! We always love crockpot meals this time of year, because they are easy to throw together and are ready when you get home from work.

We used this chili multiple ways for the next few days, it can be eaten as a soup, put on top of nachos, topped on baked potatoes, poured over fries, you name it. Chili is one of the most versatile leftovers to have, and tastes just as good reheated.

This Bean & Lentil Chili is cheap, simple, and easy to make. Check out the recipe below to make it yourself:
