I've been working on ways to be more consistent with my YouTube channel.
Even though making videos is a huge part of my brand, I feel like I didn't make many videos over the summer.
Hell, I KNOW I didn't make many videos. Three videos for the whole summer to be exact.
This is unacceptable, so streamlining the process is what I have to do to finally get back on track.
I cut out a couple of my usual steps in this chili video, so I could quickly film and edit.
The steps I skipped? Writing a script and recording my voiceover part.
As much as I love video, I will be the first to admit that it can be a lot of work when you're working on a trillion other things. *sigh*
I can talk to you about YouTube, podcasting, social media and building a business and brand for hours, but I'm sure you came for the food.
So let's get to the recipe & video....
I love chili! It's easy, filling and versatile.
We usually have it with rice or cornbread the first night and on tortilla chips with lettuce (sometimes this queso recipe) and salsa the next day.
The measurements in the recipe below is enough for one night for us, so I double the ingredients to stretch it out.

In a large bowl, soak the kidney beans in water overnight.
After soaking, rinse the kidney beans and boil in a stockpot for 30 minutes in about 10 cups of water.
Add all of the ingredients (except for the vegan crumbles and jalapeño) into a slow cooker.
Turn on and cook for 6-8 hours or until the kidney beans are soft.

Also, check your seasoning and add more salt, if necessary.
