Meatless Chili

Updated with picture

As I mentioned in my previous post, I changed up my standard chili recipe just a tad, mainly to use fresh tomatoes that I got a the farmers' market and no meat.


1.5 c black beans
1.5 c or 1 can of northern beans
3 lbs fresh tomatoes, diced
1.5 c sweet onion, diced
4 cloves garlic
8 oz tomato sauce
1 c corn, frozen okay
1 c green bell pepper, diced
1/4 c chili powder (or to taste)
salt, pepper, olive oil

Saute onions until soft in olive oil. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add tomatoes and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Allow the tomatoes to break down some, about 5 minutes, before adding beans, sauce, and chili powder. Bring to a simmer and cook covered for 20 minutes or until tomatoes are softened.

Raise temperature to medium and add bell pepper and corn. Cook for another 10 minutes until veggies are softened.

Serve in bowls with cornbread.

Serves 4-6
