Another one of my awesome freezer meals – this time one that also doubles as a great way to clean out the fridge/freezer! Once we had finished prepping my list of meals, I checked what I had left and decided I could squeeze out at least one more meal. This hodge podge of ingredients was fantastic last weekend when Mother Nature decided we needed another round of cold weather, to include snow!
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 zucchini, diced
2 carrots, round sliced then quartered
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
4 cups black beans, presoaked
1 can (28 ounces), crushed tomatoes
2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
salt and pepper to taste
- Toss all the ingredients into the slow cooker and set for low. Cook for 7hrs - or cook on high for 3hrs.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper, or more chili powder!
We topped this with cheese but chives, sour cream, guacamole or nothing would also work. As for the vegetables, whatever you have on hand will work.
