Vegetarian Chili (Dinner 9.12.10)

It's been a little chilly out, so I decided to make some chili for dinner, get it? HA! I made my own version of Vegetarian Chili using whatever I had in the house, which happened to only be Pinto beans and Black beans. I had it with some corn tortilla chips & a little cheese. Very filling, but satisfying meal!
Here's the recipe I used:

Vegetarian Pinto & Black Bean Chili
Serves: 1 (Double or Triple recipe as needed to serve more)
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/2 cup pinto beans
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 4 medium baby carrots
  • 1 large celery stalk
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chopped red pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp spanish paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  1. Heat the oil in a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, celery, red pepper and carrots. Cook for 5-10 minutes, until lightly browned.
  2. In a pot combine all other ingredients and bring to a light boil. Once it reaches a boil, lower the heat to low.
  3. Add the sauteed vegetables to the pot, mix all ingredients & cover. Let simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
