I guess you could add meat, if you wanted.
It's way good without it though. Super flavorful, satisfying and hearty.
All the ingredients go into a slow cooker ...
Only prep required is chopping a couple vegetables and opening a few cans.
NOTE: Canned beans are loaded with sodium. Rinsing them well will get rid of most of it.
