Cheater Chili

Taste on this vegan chili is fair. It's not any masterpiece of a recipe, but it's not trying to be. The real attraction is the extremely short prep time, which is 5 minutes or less.... the amount of time it takes to open 5 cans and combine them all in the slow cooker. This would be a good recipe for when you are pressed for time in the morning, and you want to have dinner ready and waiting when you come home. You can set the slow cooker before you leave, and bingo, vegan chili ready when you come back.

BTW, those are cornbread muffins in the background. I'm looking at the photo now and realizing they kind of look like cupcakes. I made the cornbread recipe from the cookbook Appetite for Reduction, but didn't want take make a whole batch, so I did half and poured the batter into muffin liners.

Ingredients: black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, corn, canned diced tomatoes, garlic, chili powder, liquid smoke, Tabasco sauce, salt, pepper.
