With the snow piling up outside…school and activities being cancelled…I thought a hearty chili recipe would be just perfect! I found this recipe years ago when I was exploring the South Beach Diet. This is perfect for lunches… and it is a small recipe at just 2 servings…and doubles well if you need more.
1/2 bell pepper (red, yellow, green), diced
1/4 medium onion, chopped
2 tsp. olive oil
3 oz. soy/meat alternative crumbles
3/4 tsp. chili powder (or to taste)
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1 oz. canned chopped green chilies, drained
1/4c an diced tomatoes (3.75 oz)
1/4 can black beans, drained (3.75oz)
1/4 can kidney beans, drained (3.75 oz)
1/4 can tomato sauce (3.75oz)
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the peppers, onion and garlic to taste and heat until they soften. Add remaining ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
