Enjoy a warm comforting bowl of this homemade chili that mixes together easily in your crockpot. If you do not want to use the plant-based meat crumbles, you can substitute a pound of browned ground beef in this recipe instead.

My favorite brand of the plant-based meat crumbles is the Gardein brand.For a meat version, substitute one pound of browned and drained ground beef for the faux meat crumbles.For a super quick version, the chopped vegetables can be left out, or you can use a 1/4 cup from a bag of frozen diced green pepper, and/or a bag of frozen diced onions.
