So I was in search of a recipe to use up some of the black beans in my pantry. I was craving a chili. Normally I do chili with meat and red beans but I thought I would go a different route this time. You know.. .to use up the black beans.
I found an interesting recipe online and my goodness, I cannot remember where. I hate that. I am supposed to be so organized when it comes to these things but the truth of the matter is that I am not. My recipe organization or lack of, needs a separate post,
So.. here is my adapted recipe to the recipe I found online that I can’t credit because I don’t know where I got it from. Whew…
2 tbsp olive oil
2 large onions, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
3 (14 oz) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
2 tsp cumin
1 package chili seasoning (your choice brand… and yes don’t judge me..i like the package seasoning!)
1 package taco seasoning (as mentioned above… don’t judge!)
10 oz package of frozen corn (i didn't use in the above but I love corn and will next time)
2 (15oz) cans of black beans, undrained
Sauté onions in the olive oil until transparent, stir frequently
Add garlic and cook 2 minutes
Add cumin and taco and chili seasonings
Cook for 2 minutes
Mix all ingredients into 4 to 5 quart slow cooker
Cover and cook for 6 to 7 hours on low
I found this recipe to be absolutely delicious and I may use this as a base for my meat chili.
The original recipe used 1 tbsp chili powder instead of the chili package and the taco package. I love taco seasoning in chili… adds that extra oomph.
Anyway! Enjoy this ! I did!
