Recipe Notes

Time saving notes:

The chili can be made in advance (you can even place all ingredients in a slow cooker on low heat for 4 hours and allow it to cook itself) to cut down on preparation time or to make it in larger batches for quick leftovers.

To save time on the vegetable prep, place the peppers and carrots in a food processor to quickly dice and shred. You can even purchase these pre-washed and chopped as an extra time saver. I will usually chop & prep veggies one time per week in advance. Then, I use the chopped vegetables throughout the week in salad, wraps, recipes, and even in my eggs in the morning. Spending just one time per week to meal prep can help to save so much time the rest of the week!
