Easy White Bean Chili | 10 Meals in an Hour | Food Made Simple | Freezer Cooking | Freezer Meals | Meatless Meals | Soup Recipes

During the dog days of summer I’m all about no-fuss recipes that practically prepare themselves.  This delicious white bean chili whips up in minutes with just a few basic ingredients, is crockpot friendly, and makes enough to feed a crowd.  It also freezes beautifully which makes it the perfect recipe to include as part of a freezer cooking day, or simply divide it into bags to eat some now and save some for later!

DIG DEEPER


Freezer meals are fast, easy, and a great way to get a hot, delicious meal on the table on weeknights when cooking isn’t number one on your massive to-do list. Get started and see just how easy freezer cooking can be!

I made it vegetarian friendly (and much lower in calories) by using vegetarian crumbles instead of beef but if your family prefers ground beef, it is delicious either way!  I like serving it with some jalapeno corn bread, sour cream and cheddar cheese.
