Another Chili Recipe – Beans and Grains

Rinsed x Any other bean you like 2 To 4 large onions, chopped

10 Or more cloves garlic,

Choice (jalepeno, Serrano, ..), minced 2 To 4 15 oz cans crushed

Chopped 1 ts Ground cayenne pepper

2 tb Chili powder

2 tb Worcestershire sauce

2 tb Vinegar

1 Bay leaf

1 ts Cinnamon

1/2 ts Allspice

1 tb Cumin

Saute the onion, peppers, hot peppers, and garlic until the onions are translucent. Add all other ingrediants and simmer a minimum of 30 minutes (about how long corn bread takes to cook ;-). Add water if chili is too thick. Adjust seasonings during cooking to taste. That’s it! Last night’s batch had TVP, 1 can pinto beans, 2 cans kidney beans, 1 can black eye peas, so I used double the spices and the higher amounts of the rest of the ingrediants. Very tasty last night and of course even better today for lunch. Posted by Cynthia Grall to the Fatfree Digest [Volume 11 Issue 13], Oct. 13, 1994.
