1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup uncooked instant brown rice

Directions Step-By-Step

In a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker, mix chili beans and gravy, drained butter beans, drained black beans, onion, sweet peppers, and jalapeno pepper. Stir in barbecue sauce and broth.
Cover and cook on low heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high heat setting for two and a half to three hours.
If using low heat setting, turn to high heat setting. Stir in uncooked Rice. Cover and cook about 30 minutes more or until rice is tender. Makes 12 servings. Tip: because Chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with Chile peppers, where plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands to touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
