I was salivating cooking dinner last night.

This vegetable chilli is so yummy my family ask me to make it all the time.

I can’t take credit for the recipe, it’s from the fabulous The Endless Meal but it’s so good I had to share.

Ingredients

  • 2 of the large 28oz cans of whole tomatoes and their juice (use your hands to roughly crush the tomatoes)
  • 2 can of beans, drained and rinsed (I used kidney and white beans)
  • 2 cup of frozen corns (you could use fresh but frozen is easy an works great)
  • 3 stalks of celery, diced
  • 2 peppers, diced (I used 1 red and 1 yellow pepper)
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1-3 tablespoons chiili powder (more will be spicier)
  • ¼-2 teaspoons of chili flakes (the more chili flakes the spicier it will be)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Salt to taste(you’ll need quite a lot)
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, cheddar cheese, cilantro, diced avocados or green onion.
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add onion and sauté for about 3 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute more. Add spices and cook stirring for about 30 seconds.
  2. Add peppers, carrots and celery and cook for about 5 minutes, or until they just start to soften. Add tomatoes and their juice and bring to a simmer. Once the chili begins to simmer, reduce the heat to medium low. You want the chili to be at a low simmer with the lid off.
  3. Continue to cook the chili, stiring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Add beans and corn and let the chili return to a simmer. Cook for 5 more minutes or until the corn and beans have heated through.
  4. Generously salt to taste.
  5. Serve on its own or topped with one (or all!) of the delicious toppings.
  6. Enjoy!
