This chili is more flavorful than any meat chili I made before we went veg! I totally disagree with previous comments about leaving out the tomatillos--they add a nice zing. We've eaten this with corn bread, on baked potatoes, and as the chili for nachos, and it's been a huge hit each time. Even my daughter who hates mushrooms loved it (no, I didn't 'fess up!). This recipe is a winner no matter how you serve it . . . and the best part is walking in the door the day it's in the crock pot and smelling that heavenly aroma!
Slow-Cooker Black Bean-Mushroom Chili
Black beans, earthy mushrooms and tangy tomatillos combine with a variety of spices and smoky chipotles to create a fantastic full-flavored chili. It can simmer in the slow cooker all day, which makes it perfect for a healthy supper when the end of your day is rushed.

I used whole spices like it said. It didn't say to grind the spices, but I wish it did because biting into the whole cardamon leaves a weird flavor.
This is a delicious recipe that I will be including in my rotation. I gave it 5 stars, which may be unfair since I didn't exactly follow the recipe, but it was a collaborative effort between the submitter, other reviewers and me :). Still, it was delicious and easy to make. Following the advice of some of the other readers and my own ideas, I used 3 cans rinsed black beans, 1 can tomatoes with chilis, one diced sweet potato (since I spied it while getting the onion and it appealed to me), and since I didn't have mustard seed, chipotle or tomatillos, those were omitted. Still very very nice, and I hope to try the original submission soon. Thank you for this delicious chili recipe.
wonderful rich flavor. I made this on the stovetop, never have luck when cooking beans in a slowcooker. The liquid amount needs to be reduced in half. I knew from making black beans many times 8 1/2 cups was waaay too much liquid. 4 is perfect. Other than that I didn't change anything. Using canned will NOT give you the same results as using the dried beans. Delish!
