Serves 8-10

Here is my mom’s healthy vegetarian chili recipe  Serve with shredded cheese, fritos, and sour cream for a delicious meal that will warm you up on a cold day!

1 (19 ounce) can black bean soup or 1 (15 ounce) can of black beans (do not drain).
2 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 (28 ounce) can tomatoes
1 (28 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1 yellow squash, chopped (or one yellow pepper)
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1 or 2 bay leaves
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients. In a slow cooker, cook for at least two hours on High OR simmer about 1 1/2 – 2 hours on the stove top.  The longer you let it go, the more the flavors blend.   I usually put a lid on and keep it partially open.
