VEGAN Crock pot Chili and Corn Muffins

Yep, more crockpot meals....  This time homemade chili and corn muffins - YUM!!

My son is a chili snob.  He is so picky about chili.  I think he should be a chili judge.

He liked this one, except he hated the peeled tomatoes, so he picked those out.

I was hoping to cook the corn muffins on top of the chili in the crockpot, but instead, I just made muffins.

**This could easily be a make ahead freezer meal.   Just put everything for the chili into a freezer bag instead of the crockpot.**

Most of these ingredients are relative to your own taste.  I did not use exact measurements, but did list the approximate amounts that I used. 

VEGAN / Veggie Chili
Large Can of Pinto Beans
Can of White Beans
Can of Black Beans
Can of Red Beans
Can of Fire Roasted Tomatoes with Green Chilis
Can of Tomato Sauce
3-5 T. Minced Garlic
2-4 T. Chili Powder, to taste
3-5 T. Mustard, to taste
1-2 t. White Pepper, to taste
Red Onion, chopped
Green Bell Pepper,chopped

*Oil for the pan


Saute your onion, bell pepper and garlic in about a tablespoon of oil.  Add to the bottom of crockpot.

Add other ingredients to the crockpot and cook on low for 5-6 hours.

I had way tooooo much for my corn muffins, so I just put the additional corn into the chili. 
And this was the only photo I had of the chili in the crockpot.

These corn muffins are soo easy when you have some premade mix on hand.  Just make each mix as you normally would and then add them together.   Yes, I was feeling really lazy today.
VEGAN Corn Muffins
Ingredients Part 1:
Cornbread Mix (we used Bob's Red Mill GF)
1/3 C Oil, of choice
1 1/2 C Milk, of choice
1/2 C Applesauce (not pictured, sorry)
Mix together, set aside.
Ingredients Part 2:
Vanilla Cake Mix (we used Bob's Red Mill GF) 
1/2 C Oil, of choice
3/4 C Applesauce (not pictured, sorry)
1/2 C Water
Mix together.  Add to cornbread batter.  Add corn if you choose.  
Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes, or until done. 

This make a lot of batter. We filled two 12 muffin tins, and had enough for a 12x6 dish as well.

We did one set of muffins with corn and one without. My son and his friend liked
the non-corn and my daughter, hubs and I enyoyed the corn filled goodies.

We crumbled the muffins on top of the chili - it was fantastic!!

We have created 4 different types of chili now, and my
son is pretty picky about what's "good."  Chili snobs can be
so high maintenance, sometimes. ;)
