Casseroles:Make-Ahead Meals

Chili is an all time favorite meal for most everyone and very easy to make. Beans are such a nutritious food and very versatile when it comes to meal planning. You can simple toss them in the slow cooker and be on your way with planning another meal for the week.

Vegetable Chili


2 Tablespoons garlic, chopped

2 cups red bell pepper, chopped

1 can (16 ounce) garbano beans, rinsed and drained

1 can (16 ounce) kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 can (14-16 ounce) corn

2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder

1 teaspoon cumin

1 cup beef broth

1 cup ready made fresh pico de gallo


Add all ingredients to slow cooker. Cook on low setting for 6-8 hours. If freezing, spoon the chili into a large freezer container. When ready to eat, thaw and reheat it in a large saucepan over low heat.
