THREE BEAN CHILI - FAMILY STYLE
Having people over for Super Bowl Sunday? How about serving up this super bowl of chili to impress the crowd =)
2tablespoons organic olive oil
1 large white onion, Chopped
2 green bell peppers
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cumin seed toasted and ground
2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, more or less to taste
2 tablespoons paprika
1½ cups tomato paste
3 cups cooked pinto beans or two 15 ounce cans, rinsed and drained
2 cups black beans or one 15 ounce can, rinsed and drained
2 cups Kidney beans or one 15 ounce can, rinsed and drained
12 tomatoes (diced) or two 28 ounce cans diced tomatoes
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
A couple of handfuls of brown rice can be added for some extra heartiness but keep in mind that it also adds to the cooking time. Brown rice takes 50 - 60 minutes to cook through, so be patient.
Sauté the onion and bell pepper in a large pot over medium heat for 8 minutes together with olive oil. Add the garlic, ground cumin, ancho chile powder, and cayenne pepper. Cook 1 minute.
Salt each layer of ingredients to get a wonderful depth in flavor. i.e. salt the onions and bell peppers as you saute them and salt the chopped tomatoes once they go in as well.
Add the tomato paste, pinto beans, black beans, kidney beans, diced tomatoes, sea salt and black pepper to taste, and 4 cups vegetable broth/water. Cook 20 to 25 minutes.
Always use organic ingredients and read labels to be sure that the contents are preservative, additive, chemical, and GMO free.
