Chili Recipe

After seeing manchicken is getting into the spirit (everyone else needs to now!) here’s another recipe. Its not mine, I got it from Zen Habits, but its too good to not post, I do make small additions since I love the “extra spicy” and take out the corn.

I first made this chili about two weeks ago and it lasted me days. A lot of the recipes I’ll be posting from now on are about saving money :). Well, that and eating less meat, mainly red, but thats a topic for another post.

  • 1 package Morning Star Meal Starters (or any ground beef replacement)
  • one 14.5-oz. can each: black beans, pinto beans, and kidney beans
  • one 29-oz. can each: stewed tomatoes & tomato sauce
  • half a yellow onion, diced
  • half a green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and diced
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, diced
  • black pepper, salt, chili powder to taste
  • olive oil

My additions:

  • Couple fresh jalapeƱos, chopped (I actually like them cut up in slices)
  • One diced habenero if you really live dangerously
  • Few drops of hot sauce, I recommend Dave’s Insanity hot sauce

I do all this in one big pot, my old brew pot. Heat the olive oil, saute the onions, garlic and then the peppers. Add the “meat”. Once all thats cooked start adding the beans, followed by the tomatoes and tomato sauce. Heat it up, then turn it down to low and let simmer for 30 minutes. Be sure to keep adding spices till its satisfying to you.

Stay tuned for my black bean burgers, buffalo tofu wraps and burritos!
