Important Information:
Beans, peas, and lentils are natural agricultural products. Despite use of modern agricultural equipment, it is not always possible to remove all foreign material. Sort and rinse before cooking.

Slow Cooker Instructions for Firehouse Chili Mix:

  1. Remove spice packet. Rinse and drain beans.
  2. Place beans into slow cooker and add 4 cups of water or broth until beans are well covered.
  3. Place spice packet, onion, bell pepper, garlic and olive oil into the slow cooker with the beans. Add water or broth until ingredients are covered, about 2-4 cups. Do not add the can of tomatoes yet.
  4. Place lid onto slow cooker and turn to high setting. Let cook for 6-8 hours or until beans are tender.
  5. When beans are soft, add canned tomatoes and continue to cook for an additional 10-15 minutes or until temperature is at your preference. If adding ground meat, brown in a skillet and add with tomatoes.

You may need to check on the soup while it’s cooking to make sure there is still enough water. If water is low and not covering the beans, add a little and continue to cook.

    Needed a great vegetarian option for a party and this was perfect. Easy to whip up last minute. Surprisingly hearty for a chili with no meat. Definitely meal worthy with some fresh cornbread. We loved the mild, but comes in spicy if your family likes a kick!

    Everyone in my family loves this chili. It’s convenient, you can vary it depending on what you want to add and even our youngest cooks enjoy making it!

    I decided to make this all vegetarian. My wife told me that it was a big risk to do a meatless chili, but I persisted.

    My packet was put together by Eboni. I got myself a big red onion, a yellow bellpepper, and two cloves of garlic. I used vegetable stock, and spent my time making this delicious meal.

    My wife saw it stewing and said, “Chili is only good with meat, so I’m not going to enjoy this.” Cut to 12 hours later, and I give her a little bowl. “Holy s**t, this is the best chili I’ve ever had in my life!”

    It is indeed the best. Love it.

    I bought this chili at the Plowshare Fair Trade Marketplace in Waukesha, WI. I loved the combination of the 3 beans & the spices were spot on. I added a diced bell pepper, some tomatoes (canned diced & tomato sauce) & 1-lb of ground beef. It was delicious. I would definitely buy this again.

  5. Scott Anderson

    Adding green chiles is a great idea! We’re also a big fan of adding fire-roasted tomatoes.

  6. Olivia

    The seasoning for this chili is great. Love that it’s a little spicy. I used diced green chiles instead of a bell pepper and the flavors were perfect.
