We all know the various reasons why vegetarian slow cooker recipes are awesome, right?

I don’t need to sing the praises of the hands-off, one-pot, easy-cleanup machine, but I’ll still encourage you to drag yours out of the back of the cupboard if you haven’t already done so this fall.

This is an easy vegetarian crock pot recipe you will love! This creamy slow cooker vegetarian chili is the perfect vegetarian comfort food! Enchilada sauce and chipotle peppers give it a bold, savory flavor. Made entirely in the slow cooker, this smoky bean chili is as easy as it is delicious.

This is one of those vegetarian crock pot recipes that requires nothing other than chucking some ingredients in a pot and walking away.

Since we’re going with a meatless chili, I decided to use four types of beans: black, white, red, and pinto!

I also added plenty of extra special ingredients to this vegetarian chili crock pot recipe for added depth of flavor.

Do you ever use chipotles in adobo sauce?

They are one of my favorite ingredients to keep on hand. The adobo sauce itself is to die for!

I never use the whole can, so I stash the extras in glass jars in the freezer.

Enchilada sauce and chipotle peppers give it a bold, savory flavor. Made entirely in the slow cooker, this smoky bean chili is as easy as it is delicious.

To add even MORE flavor to this slow cooker vegetarian recipe, I threw in a can of Old El Paso™ Mild Red Enchilada Sauce and half a block of cream cheese.

If for some bizarre reason you have leftovers, either stash it in the freezer (make sure to use freezer-safe jars), or, you can make it into bean dip.

To turn it into bean dip, just toss everything in the blender, blitz it until it’s pureed, then scrape it all out into an oven-safe dish.

Top it with some grated cheese (pepperjack is awesome!) and put it the oven to warm it up and melt the cheese. So easy!

Ingredients

  • 1 14-ounce can Old El Paso™ Mild Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 14-ounce can low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14-ounce can low-sodium white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14-ounce can low-sodium small red beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14-ounce can low-sodium pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14-ounce can sweet corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 10-ounce can diced tomatoes with green chiles, divided
  • 1 to 2 whole chipotle chilies in adobo sauce with 2 tablespoons sauce from can
  • 1 ½ cups chopped sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 ounces cream cheese - cubed
  • Optional Toppings: pickled jalapenos - chopped cilantro, sour cream, lime wedges

Instructions

  • Place the enchilada sauce, beans, corn, and half of the can of diced tomatoes in the crock of a slow cooker along with 1 ¾ cups of water.
  • Pour the remaining diced tomatoes into a small food processor or blender along with the chipotles and adobo sauce. Puree, then transfer to the slow cooker.
  • Add the onion, olive oil, and kosher salt. Cook on High for 4 hours, or Low for 8 hours.
  • Transfer two cups of the chili to a blender and puree. Return to the pot. Stir the cubed cream cheese into the chili and allow to cook for another 30-60 minutes, until well-combined. Serve hot with toppings of choice.

NOTES

Rather than transfer a portion to a blender, you can use an immersion blender to pulse the chili in the slow cooker until it is thick to your liking.
Got leftovers? Puree, top with grated cheese, and pop it under the broiler. Top with a few dollops of sour cream for an awesome vegetarian bean dip!

  1. I have been making this recipe for years and often don’t add the water! I think it’s personal preference on texture. I also put the cream cheese in the food processor when I blend, that way you don’t end up with any chunks of cream cheese.

    1. Can this be made in advance and frozen? Or, if not, can the ingredients be added to a freezer zip-close bag and frozen for easy future use?

  2. I thought the liquid to bean ratio was sufficient despite another comment I saw. But 2 chipotle peppers was a little too spicy, and I like really spicy. I’d probably stick to 1 next time. The cream cheese took much longer than 1 hour to combine for me. Overall, really tasty! 😀

  3. I have made this dish several times. Any leftovers freeze well and it is perfect to pull out of the freezer in the morning when you don’t have something on hand to cook. The flavor is rich and a bit spicy, but not too much. One of our new family favorites!

  4. That looks great! I’m going to try it.Love the recipe
    Omg! Thank you SO much! I made this at home and it was delicious! A lot of other veg chili recipes seem very complicated. This one is easy peasy and SO worth it. It also was VERY inexpensive and will last a few days

  5. This is so delicious! I added a teaspoon of Adobo seasoning, extra 10 oz can of tomatoes (love tomatoes), and substituted the cream cheese for Tofuitti vegan cream cheese. So good! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Wow! What depth of flavor this has. I would make this and never miss the meat.
    I’d love it if you shared this at What’d You Do This Weekend?

    Wishes for tasty dishes,
