    Nif's Note:

    I'm pleased to say that this recipe won first place in the Dining On A Dollar competition! ------ A nice warm dish for a cool night, just add one a crusty roll to complete your meal. Or you can have a chili bar - offer the optional toppings so each person can make their own the way they want it. The long list of ingredients is misleading because you will have most ingredients on hand.

    Optional Toppings


    1. 1
      Heat oil in a dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and saute until soft and lightly carmelized. Add carrots and celery and saute for about 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add beans, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, mushrooms, seasonings and tomato sauce. Cover and simmer over low for at least 1 hour and up to 6. Add liquid from mushrooms and broth as you check your chili, about every 15 minutes. Some people like it really thick and others want it more soup-like. You decide which you prefer!

      Ah yes, this was good. Spicy, yet not too hot. It makes a lot and it freezes well. I do like that it uses ingredients I always have on hand. Simmered the chili for about 3 hours and it filled the house with a homely smell. We opted for cheese, olives and sour cream as topping.
      Well done creating! Good luck in the contest.
      Made and reviewed for Dining on a $ Contest, Fall 2010.

      I don't make too many recipes over and over, but this is now my "go to" Chili recipe. I agree with other reviews that it is spicy yet not too hot. I use fresh tomatoes if they are in season, otherwise I use a can of diced tomatoes. I like the extra juiciness of the canned tomatoes so I sometimes use both. Thanks Nif for a great recipe!

      A nice and spicy chili. I did not miss the meat at all and neither will you. I would make this again.
