Vegetable Chili (for the Crock-Pot)

Sharon Colyer


This recipe came from a slow cooker cookbook, from the 1990s. It sounds good, but would probably be too spicy for me. So, I will have to experiment for myself, and you can do the same. (The sour cream garnish is optional. It can be left off for vegan and for certain vegetarians or use alternate product.)
