Beer Brat Chili

When the weather cooled off last week I decided it was time to try a new chili recipe. The idea for this came from a recipe I saw in Taste of Home. This slow cooker version is great.
  • 1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 1 package Tofurky beer brats, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

In a 5 quart slow cooked, combine all ingredients except brats. Cook, covered on low 5-6 hours.

About 15 minutes before serving brown the brat circles in a non-sticket skillet sprayed with cooking spray until brown on both sides.

Ladle up a bowl of chili and top with browned brats.

Enjoy! Serve with some Frank's Hot Sauce for extra kick.
