I need another name for this recipe? Any ideas?
I modified this from another recipe. It was still a bit spicy, so if your family prefers less heat, just decrease the amount of chili powder and/or leave the cayenne out. I put a little bit of almond milk in the kids to decrease the heat.
1 onion, diced
4 ribs celery, sliced
2 bell peppers, diced
1/2 pound frozen chopped spinach
16 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
15 oz. can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
3 T. tomato paste
4 cups water or vegetable broth, divided
1.25 tsp. garlic powder
1.5 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. chipotle chili powder (I used 3/4 tsp. but next time I will use less)
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1 tsp. salt (can decrease if using vegetable broth or to taste)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne (or to taste)
Water saute vegetables (except spinach) in 1 cup of the water until crisp tender. Add all other ingredients and remaining water. Let simmer ~30 minutes. A good bit of the water/vegetable broth will evaporate.
You could probably do this in the slow-cooker, but you will likely want to use less water/broth.
