Three Bean Chili
2 tbsp oil - I used EVOO
1 cup diced onions
1/2 cup diced celery
3/4 cup diced mushrooms
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can pinto beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
2 cans diced tomatoes - 1 used only one as that is all I bought, but would be better with 2
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin powder
1 lb ground beef (cooked) I used ground sirloin - optional, don't add if you would like this to be vegetarian.
Cook ground beef and set aside. In large saucepan heat oil on medium until hot, add onions, celery and mushrooms, saute until translucence. Add beans, tomatoes, spices and ground beef if using. Bring mixture to boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 15- 20 minutes.
Garnish with cheese, sour cream.
I enjoyed this recipe. My husband thought my other chili was better. The only big difference with this recipe and with what I normally do is that I add a small can of tomato sauce and garlic. I think garlic would be great in this recipe too.
