3 carrots, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1.5 c dried black beans, rinsed
2 T Chili powder
1 T Cumin
1 t Salt
Once all the ingredients are chopped, place ingredients in the slow cooker. Cover with water (about 2 inches over the beans) and set it to low for 8 hours.
8am - I chopped everything last night, so I just had to turn the crockpot on this morning before leaving for work.
Noon - home during my lunch hour.
6pm - everything is dark except the peppers.
