Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 poblano chile, seeded and chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chiles
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 cans (15.5 ounces each) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cans (15.5 ounces each) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes

Cook's Note

The great thing about serving this vegetarian chili over rice is that you get a complete protein.

Suggested toppings: sour cream, fresh cilantro leaves, lime wedges, grated Monterrey Jack, chopped red onion.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a large Dutch oven or other heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion, poblano, and garlic; season with salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in green chiles, chili powder, and cumin and cook 3 minutes. Add beans, tomatoes and juice, and 2 cups water; bring to a boil over high. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender and chili is thickened, 20 to 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt.

    Very nice recipe. I used 1 can each of kidney, pinto, cannellini and black beans. To the recipe, I doubled the garlic, added 2 tbsp. tomato paste and 1 chipotle chili, chopped. Can't beat how quick this chili can be made!

    A very simple improvement would be to make this with four different types of beans - 1 can of each instead of 2 cans of 2 kinds of beans. Also, more garlic.

    This is a really delicious, simple recipe. It is so versatile really; you could substitute for different beans, or even try diced jalapeno peppers. I love it with lots of lime and sour cream! :)
