Mushroom and Black Bean Crock Pot Chili

This recipe was good, but I'd be lying if I said I could eat it without sour cream and chips, cause this stuff is hot.

- 1 pound ground turkey or chicken
– 1 pound mushrooms, any variety, sliced
- 2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
- 5 1/2 cups fat free vegetable broth
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 1 can corn kernels, drained and rinsed
- 1 large zucchini, chopped
- 8 ounces tomatillos, husked, rinsed and chopped
- 2 fresh jalapenos, seeded and finely chopped
- 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup mustard seeds
- 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 2 tbsp chili powder
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp ground cardamom
- 2 tbsp minced canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
- 1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream

Combine oil, mustard seeds, chili powder, cumin and cardamom in a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven. Place over high heat and stir until the spices sizzle, about 30 seconds. Add onions, garlic, mushrooms, corn, jalapenos, zucchini, tomatillos and water. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are juicy, 5 to 7 minutes. Uncover and stir often until the juices evaporate and the vegetables are lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Add broth, lime juice, tomato paste, salt & pepper and chipotles; mix well.
Place the beans in a 5- to 6-quart crock pot or slow cooker. Pour the hot vegetable mixture over the beans. Turn heat to high. Put the lid on and cook until the beans are creamy, 5 to 8 hours. Garnish with sour cream, cilantro and diced tomatoes right before serving
