Pandora's Easy, Breezy Three Bean Chili

Here is a super fast, easy and tasty chili recipe you can make in your crock pot in minutes!
Serves approximately 6 people.

1 14 to 15 oz can of organic Black Beans, rinsed and drained
1 14 to 15 oz can of organic Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained
1 14 to 15 oz can of organic Pinto Beans, rinsed and drained
1 14 to 15 oz can of peeled crushed tomatoes
1 4 to 6 oz can of tomato paste
1/4 cup of water
2 cloves of garlic
onion powder or onion flakes
chili powder
ground cumin seed
hot sauce
dash of salt "cheddar" cheese
shredded soy

Turn crock pot to "high", then gather your ingredients.
Chop garlic cloves well, and add to the bottom of your crock pot. Add tomato paste and water, stir well. Then throw in your beans, and crushed tomatoes. Now here's the fun part. Add the above seasonings to your specific taste. I love chili with a stronger cumin flavor, so I tend to add more of that and the onion powder or flakes. Maybe you prefer a more spicy chili? Add some hot sauce or maybe even Cayenne pepper! Whatever you enjoy, toss it in! Just one word of warning, add these spices a little at a time, stir, and taste. If you don't have these spices, grab a McCormick "Chili" starter bag, and make this recipe even easier!
Turn your Crockpot to "warm" or "low" and let those flavors meld.
This chili is delicious by itself, with cheddar soy chesse, over soy dogs on a bun, or even on top of fries!
