    Abby Girl's Note:

    If you enjoy lentils and black beans, then you should find this chili extremely satisfying!! The recipe called for 29 oz can diced tomatoes, fire roasted with chilies. That product is not available in Canada, so I added a can of chopped green chilies. If you are "one of those" who can take extreme heat, by all means, use fresh chilies with the seeds left in for that exta punch!!

      Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Cook onion, pepper and garlic, stirring often, until vegetables are softened, about 10 minutes.

      Really delicious! I love a flavourful chili and this was just that. It's super easy to make and I was excited to use lentils more. My fiance liked it too! We didn't even miss the meat because of the black beans.

      I am not a meat eater but my family are, therefore I was looking for a healthy recipe for all of us to enjoy. We're also from Canada and the fire roasted tomatoes with chilis would really help the flavour, but I think that the cilantro is the key. I followed the recipe and had shredded cheese, sliced green onions, jalapeno slices and sour cream to add and served it with 12 grain tortillas. Thanks Abby for a new recipe.
