This serves a lot, so feel free to half the recipe. This is not overly hot unless you add the optional jalapenos and cayenne pepper. Prep time does not include the 8 hours to soak the beans.

    Yummm, chili :D. I made it using vegie crumbles for the meat with all else being the same and it came out great. Really hit the spot last evening after a full afternoon of freezing rain. Topped with some fat reduced cheddar it was filling and oh so yummy. Had to use red bell pepper as that is what I had on hand. This is a marvelous, from scratch, chili to be made on a day when your home and want to say "I made it for you".

    This was a big hit at our house, even DH commented how well he liked this chili!!! I made it with dry light red kidney beans (what we like), omitted the bell pepper (DH is not a fan of it) and reduced the oregano in half. I originally added only half of the chili powder and cumin, but after 1st hour, I tasted it and adding the remaining amounts and did go ahead and add the cayenne pepper. I don't care for a real hot spicy chili that numbs the mouth and this didn't put still had a kick and a lot of flavor!! Made for Adopt A Tag in the Games Forum.
