Updated: Mar 6, 2022

This bowl of warmth has all of the elements you’re craving this winter. With just the right amount of spice with tons of toppings to choose from…

Did you know that spicy peppers offer immune supportive, pain & inflammation reducing phytonutrients? Turn up the heat 🙂

This weekend is the perfect time to cook up a batch of chili for easy meals during the week. I used my slow cooker for an even easier experience.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: Low & Slow for ~6-8 hours

Makes 8 hearty servings


4 cloves garlic

1 medium onion

1 cup tomato sauce or canned tomatoes (I used fire roasted, organic)

2 cups fresh spinach

1 cup frozen cauliflower rice

1 can black beans

1 can chickpeas

6 oz organic chicken breast (uncooked)

1/2 cup Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce (mild or medium)

2 cups chicken broth

2 cups water (add more as needed to cover all ingredients in your slow cooker)

1 Tbsp dried cumin

1 Tbsp dried chili powder

2 tsp dried turmeric

salt and black pepper to taste


diced avocado or smash into guac > sour cream > cheese > nondairy options for cheese & sour cream > plain greek yogurt is also a good sub for sour cream

tortilla chips or toasted corn tortillas
