Welcome back to my blog! I hope all who tried out the Black Bean Burger had a successful experience and are ready to try out my absolute favorite vegetarian dish! This meal although very different from the Black Bean Burger is still very good and would just taste lovely on a chilly night.
VEG-HEAD THREE-BEAN CHILI
I know when most people think of a good tastin chili they think either lots of meat, lots of hot sauce, or lots of both! This recipe while not hot or meaty is still amazingly good! I never turn down a good bowl of vegetarian chili and this dish will just leave you wanting more. This recipe will make four good sized servings and everyone, vegetarian or not, is sure to enjoy it!
2 tablespoons olive ore vegetable oil
1 medium yellow skinned onion, chopped
1 large red pepper, seeded and chopped
2 large green pepper, seeded and chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
1 cup pale beer or vegetable stock/broth
1 (32-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 (14-ounce) can black beans
1 (14-ounce) can dark red kidney beans
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cayenne hot pepper sauce, several drops
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 can spicy vegetarian refried beans
The first thing to do would be to sauté onion, peppers, and garlic in the olive/vegetable oil. This should take about 3-5 minutes over moderate heat. Then add in the beer or broth, tomatoes, black beans, and the red kidney beans. Make sure to stir and combine the ingredients.
Now season the chili with the cumin, chili powder, hot sauce, and salt. To thicken the chili stir in the refried beans. Now just let the chili sit over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes longer and you are ready to serve.
When serving the VEG-HEAD THREE-BEAN CHILI make sure you have all the needed toppings such as, shredded cheese (Monterey jack or smoked cheddar! YUMMM), sour cream, and always bread and butter for the side!
Now that you VEG-HEAD THREE-BEAN CHILI is completed and your toppings are ready it is time to serve! This chili is guaranteed to please!
