4.9 from 7 reviews

This Slow Cooker Soy Chorizo Chili is a true comfort food, slow-simmered with nutritious veggies, and a thick, hearty, slightly spicy meaty sauce that is sure to be your favorite easy weeknight meal.



Optional Toppings:


  1. In a slow cooker, add all ingredients (the order doesn’t matter) and stir. Important: be sure to remove the outer casing of the chorizo before adding to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-7 hours. When ready, scoop out into a bowl and enjoy! Add crackers, chopped cilantro or even some vegan sour cream. Store this chili in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
  2. Note: you can also cook this on your stovetop. See stovetop instructions in the Notes section below. 


Stovetop Instructions:

You can also cook this chili on your stovetop, although I recommend using the slow cooker for the best flavor. To a large pot or Dutch oven, add 2 tablespoons unsalted vegetable broth (or 1 tablespoon olive oil) over medium-high heat. Add the diced onions and bell pepper and cook until the onions are soft and translucent, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium, all remaining ingredients and let simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
