  1. In a large skillet, sauté onions in the oil for about 3 – 5 minutes until soft, stirring occasionally.
  2. To the sautéed onions, add the red, green, and jalapeno peppers and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. To the onion and pepper mixture, add the chili powder, ground cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir well and cook for about 2 minutes.
  4. In a crock-pot*, add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, veggie broth, and drained beans.
  5. To the crock-pot* add the sautéed mixture of onions, peppers, and seasonings. Stir well.
  6. Cover and cook for 4 – 6 hours on HIGH setting (or 8 hours on LOW) according to your crock-pot recommendations. * If you choose to use a large stock pot instead of a crock pot, combine all ingredients in the pot and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat, cover, and cook for about 30 minutes (longer if desired!)
  7. Serve hot chili in bowls or mugs (or on top of a baked potato that is cut lengthwise) and top with 1 – 2 TBSP of your favorite Notcho Nocheez flavor (Classic or Hot).
  8. Optional: Garnish with vegan sour cream, chopped avocado, chopped jalapenos, and/or chopped green onions (scallions).
