Ingredients

    1 (12 oz.) pkg Morning Star Griller Crumbles
    1 (10 oz.) Campbell's French Onion Soup (Beef Stock)
    1 (12 oz) glass bottle of Mexican "Gringo" Coke--uses sugar instead of dangerous HFCS--I buy mine from Grocery Outlet
    2 cans Wild Oats Organic Dark Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
    1 (6 oz.) can Huntís No Salt Added Tomato Paste
    1 (8 oz.) can Great Value No Salt Added Tomato Sauce
    1 Tbsp. Wild Oats Organic Chili Powder
    2 tsp Trader Joe's Spices of the World Ground Cumin
    5 grinds--approx. 1/2 tsp.--McCormick Black Peppercorn Grinder (whole peppercorns)
    2 tsp. Hershey's Cocoa Powder

Tips

* Morningstar Grillers are a vegetarian, not vegan, product including powdered milk and egg white in the ingredient list. Trader Joe's Beef-less Ground Beef is a vegan option. Campbell's French Onion Soup uses beef broth, so this is NOT a vegetarian recipe. However, if you wish to make it so, use a vegan or vegetarian onion or mushroom soup stock--preferably canned--and recalculate your nutrition information.


Directions

Place entire 12 oz. pkg. of Grillers in a microwave safe dish, add 1/3 cup of water and cover with a paper towel. Microwave Grillers for 5-6 minutes, stirring once. Pour soup in blender (you can also place it in a deep cup and use an immersion blender, just don't touch blades to the bottom) and pulse for 1 minute. Measure out one cup of the Coke into a glass liquid measure--you can immediately drink the remaining Coke in the bottle, I do! Add all ingredients to crockpot and simmer on LOW for 6 hours or HIGH for 2 hours. I prefer to cook on HIGH because the ingredients are already pre-cooked, they just need to "meld" and combine the flavors.

Serve as is, with or without oyster crackers or saltines, or do the traditional Ohio thing and serve over spaghetti with toppings--grated parmesan or shredded cheddar cheese, or even use raw chopped white onion as well!

Serving Size: 8 (1 cup) servings.
