I made this without cardamom (too expensive) or mustard seed, just didn't have it. I really liked the mushrooms! I've been eating it out of my freezer for lunch for weeks. Freezes really well. I don't even notice the tomatillos in the finished version, so, wouldn't bother next time. It's not exactly "simple", I may forgo some of the prep cooking and just dump it all in and see what happens. Used much more liquid than required, kept adding as it got dry, and it does need to be cooked longer. I will make it again
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.

Fabulous! Even better the second (and third) days!
This was a total waste of time and money. Did not like it at all!!
I've made this a few times for my family and I've brought it to several pot lucks. It has always gotten rave reviews and people always ask for the recipe. I do cook it a bit longer.
I thought this was pretty boring. Bland, watery, uninteresting, and my boyfriend follows recipes to a T, so I know he didn't anything he's not supposed to do (that's what I do when I cook; makes for some weirdo meals!). I wouldn't have given this any stars, but I gave it a 1 for its use of tomatillos outside of a salsa. Pretty sure I'll never want to make this again.
