Black Bean Chili

Oh my goodness, this chili was fantastic. My husband refused to call it a chili until it had actual chilies in it. In the evening on my way home, I picked up a habanero and some random green chili at the grocery store to make it a proper chili.





In the morning I put the following in my 1.5 qt slow cooker:
black beans
onions
carrots
chili powder
cumin
garlic powder
water, just to cover

Cook on low for 6-8 hours. I came back and it had reduced to a very thick chili.

While I was making corn bread, I added frozen corn, above mentioned chilies, and adjusted the seasoning. To serve, garnish with cilantro.

This had my husband sweating a bit from the heat of the chili, but I thought it was perfect. I love spicy foods.
