Spicy Black Bean Chili in the slowcooker

Spicy Black Bean Chili from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slowcooker

1 Tbs olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and chopped (I used green because that's what I had on hand)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs chili powder
One 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
3 cups slow-cooked or two 15.5 oz cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup water
one 4-oz can diced green chilies, drained
salt and pepper

1. heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic. Cover and cook until just softened, about 5 minutes. Add chili powder and cook another 30 seconds

2. transfer it all to a 4-6 qt. slow cooker. Add tomatoes, beans, water and chilies. Season with salt and pepper, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Rich said this was good, I haven't tried it yet.
