There are 4 types of beans in this crock pot chili. All the beans add something to the flavor of this chili but the lentils also cook faster and almost turn to mush and create a thick sauce for the other beans. The lentils also have a "meaty" flavor. Perfect recipe for a busy, cold winter day.

In a large pot place water, onions, garlic, peppers, all 4 beans, and spices and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Let boil for 5 minutes. Place into crock pot and cook for 4 hours on high. After 3 hours place half can of the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, nutritional yeast, sugar and salt into a food processor and process for about a minute. Pour this and the other half can of diced tomatoes into the crock pot and cook another hour or until beans are done.
