Effortless Black Bean Chili

“My mom found the inspiration for this chili in a slow-cooker cookbook. After a few updates, all of us love it (even those of us who steer clear of beans). We think it’s even better served over rice.” —Amelia Gormley, Ephrata, Pennsylvania

Recipe Notes

Test Kitchen tips
We used thick and chunky salsa for more texture. If you prefer frozen, use about 1-3/4 cups frozen corn for the can called for in the recipe.

Health Tip: Rich in fiber, folate, thiamin, magnesium and phosphorous, black beans are a smart ingredient to add to any chili!
