Easy crockpot recipe. We think its really tasty. Can be served over rice, nacho chips or as a filler for tortillas. Or just serve it with bread.

Only thing I'd change about this is the name - to Mixed Chili Beans. I wouldn't think of this as chili, rather beans. They're creamy and flavorful with a touch color from the bell pepper. I added 1T vinegar just before serving.
