  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp ancho chili powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cayenne pepper (optional, for mild spice)
  • 4 cups unsalted vegetable stock
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup salsa verde (or your favorite salsa)
  • 1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles
  • 2 bell peppers, diced
  • ¾ cup red lentils, rinsed
  • ½ cup corn, frozen (OR: fresh or canned)
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 (15 oz) can coconut milk
  • salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste


  • 1 fresh avocado
  • 1 standard bag tortilla chips (OR: tortilla strips)

Slow Cooker


  • Bloom: Set slow cooker to high. Add oil, chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, ancho chili powder, and cayenne. Allow spices to heat while gathering/preparing other ingredients
  • Combine: When the spices are fragrant, add the stock, kidney and black beans, salsa, green chiles, bell peppers, lentils, corn and tomato paste. Stir to combine.
  • Cook: Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 6-8 hours.
  • Serve: Just before serving, mix in the coconut milk. Top with avocado, tortilla chips, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. Enjoy!
  • Store: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.


For even speedier prep: Combine all ingredients besides coconut milk into slow cooker. Blooming the spices for a bit is nice, but you will still end up with an excellent result without.
