  • 1 15- ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 15- ounce can pinto beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 14- ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 4- ounce can diced mild green chiles
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2-3 cups vegetable broth use the higher amount if your crockpot runs hot or you'll be cooking it longer than about 6 hours
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1 bell pepper I used red, diced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder I used garlic salt because my beans weren't cooked in any salt
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3/4 cup quinoa rinsed throughly
  • Guacamole shredded cheese, crushed tortilla chips, sour cream, etc for serving


  1. Combine all ingredients (except the toppings, obviously) in a crockpot. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. Stir to combine, salt and pepper to taste, and serve with your choice of toppings. I won't judge if they aren't vegan.
