Vegetarian Chili

I love chili, especially vegetarian chili.  It’s easy, fairly quick, and very nutritious – plus it’s pretty cheap to make, and who doesn’t like to save a little cash?

I can’t recall where I found the original recipe for this particular vegetarian chili or else I would post a link to it.  Here, however, is my version of this filling vegetarian delight.  My take on this recipe isn’t very spicy, and has a lovely sweet flavor since I only use red bell peppers (my husband doesn’t like green bell peppers, so I usually have to substitute another color bell pepper for the green in recipes, and of course they’re always more expensive than the green ones, especially the organic version).  Enjoy! ;)

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped red bell peppers
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder (I personally use 1 tablespoon so it’s not too spicy)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 (16 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

Directions:

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.

Add onions, bell pepper, and garlic; saute 5 minutes, or until tender.

Add sugar and remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.

*You can eat it plain, or put it over cooked basmati rice – it’s yummy!

Peace. ;)
