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!

Use this printable sheet for freezer cooking tips. 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.

Assemble your ingredients for the white bean chili: vegetarian protein crumbles, sweet onion, fire roasted tomatoes, frozen corn, green chilies, salsa verde, dry chili mix, vegetable stock and butter.

Here is what you need:

1 package vegetarian protein crumbles
1 sweet onion
3 15oz cans white beans
2 15oz  can fire roasted tomatoes
1 10oz bag frozen corn
2 4oz cans diced green chilies
 1 16oz  jar salsa verde
2 packages dry chili mix
1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
3-4 tablespoons butter

 sour cream & shredded cheddar cheese (optional-for cooking day only)

Chop onion then set aside.

Step 1: Chop onion , set aside.

In a pan saute onions, veggie crumbles and butter.

Step 2: Melt butter in large saucepan. Brown the vegetarian protein crumbles in the butter; add onions if desired.  Set aside (or place onions in raw)

Rinse and drain white beans in the sink.

Step 3: Rinse and drain white beans.

Combine meat, onions, beans, corn, tomatoes, diced chilies, salsa verde, and chili mix

Step 4: Combine meat, onions, beans, corn, tomatoes, diced chilies, salsa verde, and chili mix. Add stock if needed for extra moisture.

Divide mixture into two gallon-size freezer bags.

Step 5: Divide mixture into two gallon-size freezer bags (be sure to label bags first!)  Freeze until needed.

Cook in slowcooker for 3-4 hours on low.

Step 6: Cook in slowcooker for 3-4 hours on low.

Serve with sour cream, cheddar cheese and jalapeno corn bread.

Step 7: Serve with sour cream, cheddar cheese and jalapeno corn bread.
