Number of Servings: 7

Ingredients

    It makes a large 7-cups and freezes well. My family favorite in the winter.

    1-1/4 cups vegetable stock
    3/4 cup chopped carrots
    1 cup chopped onions
    1 cup chopped green bell pepper
    1 cup chopped red bell pepper
    1 cup chopped celery
    1 tblsp minced garlic
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp dried thyme (optional)
    1/2 tsp ground coriander
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1-1/2 tsp chili powder
    1-2 oz minced canned jalapeno peppers
    2 cups chopped tomatoes
    3 cups cooked pinto beans (or 9-bean mix)
    1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
    1 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
    1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Tips

You can always chop veggies a day ahead & bag them up to make it quicker to cook the following day.


Directions

-- MAKES SEVEN 1-CUP (300g) SERVINGS.

-- Place 2 tbls of the vegetable stock into a large nonstick pan and "sweat" the carrots, onions, green and red bell peppers, and celery for 4 to 5 minutes.
-- Add the garlic, oregano, thyme, coriander, cumin, chili powder, jalapenos, tomatoes, beans, cilantro and remaining vegetable stock.
-- Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Add a little extra vegetable or bean liquid if a "saucier" chili is desired. Add the corn kernels and simmer for 7 minutes.

-- TIME-SAVER:
-- Dump all ingredients in a crock pot to cook
-- Used canned chopped tomatoes, etc.

-- SERVE HOT. Try it with steamed corn tortillas and brown rice. Or serve it with a green salad for a complete dinner. Mango is also a great compliment.

-- I often substitute a multiple bean mix for the pinto beans-- it is very colorful, like confetti!
