For the first time in 27 years of marriage, I had a crockpot die! Very strange,, they usually last forever.

I knew that I could probably get one on sale at Costco over the holidays and so I waited, limping along with only two crockpots until I could get my $1o dollars off.

I got a bonus in the box, a small recipe book.  At first I thought there couldn’t be any good recipe there but on a desperate day, I perused through the recipes because I was out of meat and no car was available.  I came across this ‘bean casserole’ recipe and decided to give it a try.

The guys loved it!  It was a hit!Gluten free crockpot recipe three bean casserole

Hot three-bean casserole*
(*Note: from the Original Crock-pot)

1/2 cup olive oil
2 cup chopped onion
2 cups chopped celery
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups frozen cut green beans
2 cans chickpeas
2 cans kidney beans
2 cups coarsely chopped tomato
2 cups water
2 cans tomato sauce
2-3 jalapeno peppers, minced
2 T chili powder
4 teaspoons sugar
1 T cumin
2 t salt
2 t oregano
1/2 t pepper

Saute the onion, celery and garlic first.

Next add the saute mixture and the rest of ingredients in crockpot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

This is a great gluten free, soy free, dairy free recipe!  I use xylitol rather than sugar.  I also use chopped hot peppers.

Let me know what you think of this recipe…

    “4 teaspoons” of what right above the “1 T cumin”? I’m not good enough to figure out what is missing.

    Thanks, looks yummy! I love hot stuff!

      Thanks for noticing that I forgot an ingredient! It is rather critical – sugar! I use Xylitol rather than sugar. It is amazingly fast and easy and tasty! If I am going to be gone for a week I usually make 3 crockpots of it for the boys to consume while I’m gone. If they also have rice it will last them about 4-5 days.
