We have cooking challeneges at work to see who can make the best x...it changes every month and I usually participate as then people here at work can see how tasty vegan food is! In the past it has been baked goods like brownies and such, but this month is chilli. I have a great recipe, but I have only ever made it in a pot on the stove and then eatten it that night (or reheated the leftovers). Since I have to transport it to work and have it hot for lunchtime I think crockpot is the way to go - does anyone know if I need to do something different for that? I don't want it to get all messed up by lunchtime....My basic recipe is beans, beets, carrots and spices so I am also worried about everything cooking too long and falling apart. I have never actually cooked with a crock pot before so thanks for any help!
