More About Chili

OK, in addition to Marve, a few other bloggers have posted their chili pics:

Cooper, Hyphenated non-IDentity, and Goblinbox.
Oh. And Diablo made chili earlier in the week, too.

Visit their blogs. Comment on their wondrous chili creations! Mmm. Chili.

And, since today is Meat-Free Monday*, here's how I made my chili on Saturday:

VUBOQ's Easy Meat-Free Chili
(adapted from Lorna Sass' Short Cuts Vegetarian cookbook):

1. In a large pot, add some olive oil.

2. Saute some garlic (to taste) and one onion (diced) until mostly cooked.

3. Add chili powder. Cook for a bit.

4. Add half of a green bell pepper (diced).

5. Add three cans black beans (drained and rinsed), one can kidney beans (drained and rinsed), and two cans of diced tomatoes with chilies (neither drained nor rinsed).

6. Add two carrots (minced in handy dandy food processor).

7. Add one chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (also minced) and a couple of spoonfuls of adobo sauce (depending on how spicy you like it).

8. Add one 12 oz. bag of Morningstar Crumbles.

9. Add 1 or 2 cups of frozen corn.

10. Let all this cook for a bit.

11. If you want, top with sour cream and shredded cheese. Also additional hot sauce, if you so desire.

12. Serve with cornbread.

13. Eat, smile, say "YUM!"

Here's the photo again:

My Meat-Free Monday meal will be the last of the chili and cornbread. I thought I would have loads left-over, but the ravenous horde devoured nearly all of the chili! So, it must have been good (or they were too drunk/hungry to care).

  4. The heck is a Morningstar Crumble? Corn does not belong in chili. Needs some fresh jalapenos. Grumble, grump.

  5. i love my veggie chili, it has zucchini, corn, tomato, and all sort of other yummy things. i prefer the little red beans to kidney beans. i love chili on rice with some dante's inferno hot sauce and glob or 4 of sour cream. the flavours together are wonderfulouslymarvelous

  6. What the eff is "Morningstar Crumbles."?!

    Can I have some please? I'll send you a hat with corks on. Oh, wait...

    ok, I'll send you a boomerang (but it'll probably come back - ha ha ha) or kangaroo paw or something.

    How're you off for rfuabna? No, I don't know either, it's the word verification thing....
