Spicy Meatless Chili
When I was working (I'm retired now), this recipe was a mainstay because I could prepare the ingredients the night before, then on the way out the door in the morning throw everything in the slow cooker. When I got home later, I made the toppings and supper was done. —Jane McMillan, Dania Beach, Florida
