This recipe is from the January/February 1991 issue of Chile Pepper magazine, Nancy Gerlach’s article on Hot & Spicy VEGETARIAN ENTREES. The intro to the recipe says, “Beans are inexpensive and an excellent source of protein as well, making them one of the best nutritional bargains on the market. Add some flour tortillas and grated cheese and they can’t be beat. This chili tastes so good that you’ll hardly miss the meat.” The long cook time is mainly 2 1/2 to 3 hours simmering time. Heat scale: medium.
