easy chili


I served this with grated soy cheese, tortilla chips, and salad. (Would be great with cornbread too!) Normally I do a chili with kabocha squash, cinnamon, and cocoa powder, but it was nice to have a more traditional one for a change.

You'll need:
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 5 piman (small Japanese green peppers, chopped (or 1 chopped regular green pepper)
  • 6-7 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 kg ground beef
  • 2 450ml cans kidney beans, drained
  • 2 450ml cans chopped tomatoes (add water to the empty cans to swish out the tomato remains into the chili pot, for a total of about 1 can of water)
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Do this: 

Saute the onions, green pepper, and garlic in oil in a soup pot, then add the rest of the ingredients and stir till the ground beef is in small pieces. Simmer about 20 minutes or more if you have time.


Substitute half the ground beef with cooked lentils.

Add a teaspoon of cumin if you like it.
