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! :)
