i found this chili on a site and it was really good and low fat
- 1⁄2 cup bell pepper, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup onion, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 (14 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
- 1 (14 ounce) can kidney beans
- 1 cup corn, drained
- 1 cup water
- 3 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons salt
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cumin
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup long grain rice
- in a pot cook peppers, onion,garlic till tender.
- add tomatoes,beans corn, chili powder, salt&pepper,cumin and rice.
- bring to boil.
- reduce and simmer for 30 minutes.
I didn't give it any stars because I basically ripped the recipe apart. I don't like onions so I skipped those and instead of kidney beans I use pinto beans b/c that's all we had. I didn't add the rice (or water) because I thought it looked good without it! However, I think I will add rice next time and maybe try balck beans. I never ate regular chili because of all the hunks of meat in it, thanks for a good, basic vegetarian chili recipe! I can see many, many ways to change this up and make it different every time!
This recipe needs a major overhaul! After simmering for 30 minutes with a lid on (even though directions do not indicate),the rice was still hard...added more water, and simmered another 1/2 hour. All in all I added probably at least 1 more cup of water,simmered for about an hour and ended up with a pot of mush! Also, 3 tablespoons of chili powder was way too much for my taste. I'm going to keep at this though...it has major potential.
