I just found this photo of a crock pot full-o-chili midway through the cooking. The organic beef was brown, the leftover veggies from prior meals were cooked but the fresh ones were still brightly hued. Isn't it pretty? As the colors muted the flavors melded into something glorious. I used Chipotle powder, cumin, a little turmeric, garlic powder and salt. Mmmmm.
