Time To Get (Slow) Cooking!!!
Slow Cooker Bean Chili Soup by Custom Taste
We buy a lot of celery, chop it up and
 freeze it for times like this
Make dried beans according to package directions (please see tricks)
If you are choosing to use canned beans make sure to rinse them throughly to get off any added salt, sugars or anything else that may have been added during the canning process
In the mean time chop up your onions, celery and carrots and set to the side
Mix up the spices in a separate bowl so they will also be ready when it comes time to transfer to the slow cooker
Once your beans are ready turn on the slow cooker to high

Pour water and coffee into the slow cooker and mix a little bit
Slow Cooker Bean Chili Soup by Custom TasteAdd in the beans and veggies, and mix around
Add in the spice and mix until incorporated
Put lid on the slow cooker and set for 6 or 7 hours
Depends on how watery you like your chili
Stir occasionally to ensure the spices are not sitting on the bottom for any reason
Once it is done cooking, eat and enjoy!!!

Serve and garnish as you would any other chili. You can also eat is over a baked potato or with pasta. 1/2 cup is one serving.
