Slow Cooker Chili con Queso - Veggie Style

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

Doooodz. You know what I love most (read: only) about game day?

The food. (I can hear my hubs rolling his eyes.)

But seriously – as someone who couldn’t tell you the difference between my thumb and a pass interference, the biggest reason I look forward to game day in our house is for the snackage. And we go all out, too, from pizza rolls to chips and dip to those little hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls (they’re so CUTE! And there goes my hubs rolling his eyes again.). But my favorite dish? The one I pine for? The one I could write love letters to if I knew its name and address? It’s this Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili Con Queso.

People, this stuff is gooooo-ooood. It’s cheesy and bean-y and tasty and filling and all sorts of other magical things. It’s full of veggies, too, so you can say it’s good for you. Sometimes I like to make it in the slow cooker just so my house can smell like a candle of chili con queso. Only I get to EAT IT, TOO.

Let’s get snacking!

First, grab your ingredients. Them’s a lot of beans in this dish of the pinto and black and chili varieties, as well as an onion, a couple o’ peppers and diced tomatoes. All good things!


Vegetarian Chili con Queso mix all ingredients

Chop up the veggies and pour them into your slow cooker along with the beans, the tomatoes and the tomato paste. Add a few dashes of chili powder and garlic, too.

Mix it all up and let it cook lowwwwwwww and slowwwwwwww for a few hours. Enjoy the smells.

Just when you think you can’t take it anymore and you just HAVE TO DIP YOUR FACE IN IT JUST ONCE, it’s done! Actually you first have to stir in some shredded cheese.

Now’s about the time you turn on the game and get to dipping. I like to dip tortilla chips in it. And sometimes my face.
