Slow Cooker Spanish Rice Chili


"This is a great set-it-and-forget-it recipe using Knorr® Spanish rice. Just prepare the rice (or use some leftover rice from the night before), mix it with a few freezer staples, beans, salsa, and spices, and blam! The best chili ever after a few hours in the slow cooker. Garnish with cheese, sour cream, and/or diced onions. This would also go great on top of a big pile of fries on game day."

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Since there's no dairy in this recipe, it's secretly vegan! If you want to dress this up or add some meat or dairy, it's great too.
  • You can also cook this on High for 3 to 4 hours.
