In april last year, my lovely sister in law threw a beautiful bridal shower for me! It was awesome. We played games and had SO much good food. One of the awesome things that I got was a photo book of recipes that everyone had written. Its super cute. And it sit on my kitchen bench. I have tried to make my way through all the little recipe cards.. Anyway. Side track.
One card from Seth’s lovely aunt Sara, had this AWESOME chilli recipe. Like. Its delicious. This is the one we eat like, all the time. Its super easy and super quick and doubles & triples super well. Plus its like everything free and vegan. And most importantly, everyone loves it. So. Here is it!
Aunt Sara’s Awesome Chilli
1 Can (425g/15oz) black or Pinto beans
1 Can (425g/15oz) kidney beans * Sometimes if I don’t have kidney beans i just do two cans of black, it works well*
1 can (425g/15oz) diced tomatoes
1/2 onion diced fine
3 cloves of crushed garlic
1 bell pepper (capsicum) *I use red mostly*
2 TBs olive oil
1/4 cup veg. broth. * I use my home made one, but you an use any*
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 ts of salt & 1/2 of pepper ( or to taste)
dash of cayenne & red pepper flakes.
In a pot, sautee onion, garlic, bell pepper in olive oil. Add tomatoes, broth and chilli powder. And stir to combind well. Reduce heat to medium low and add beans and other seasoning. Stir occasionally and let simmer for 20mins. Although, the longer the better! I like to leave mine for like 40. The flavour is awesome. Its super goo with corn chips. I dip steam broccoli in mine.. But then again. Im kinda strange like that;)
