Hi everyone! I’m Shannah, from Just Us Four, and I am so excited to be here again this month sharing a new recipe with you. If your family is anything like mine, getting vegetables into them is a real challenge. I find myself looking for new ways to hide vegetables in foods so I can make sure they get enough. Crockpot hidden veggie chili is the perfect way to sneak vegetables into your family as they scoop up spoon after spoon of delicious chili while suspecting nothing!

Hidden Veggie Crockpot Chili

A lot of people think of chili as more of a winter food but, because I toss it all in the crockpot before work, I serve it all the time. Serve it with some sliced bread and you have a meal ready by the time you walk in the door in the evening. Easy peasy…

The first time I made this, I was sure my husband would be able to tell I had added in some of his least favorite vegetables. To my surprise, he never even questioned it. He did ask for seconds though 😉
