Vegetarian Chili

Notes

Recipe Notes

  • Use kidney or black beans instead of pinto beans.
  • Cook your own dry beans. One can (15 ounces) is about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups drained beans.
  • One large ear of corn makes about 1 cup of cut corn.
  • Top with chopped cilantro, avocado, plain yogurt or any mix.
  • Add cayenne pepper or hot sauce if you like a spicy chili.
  • If you like a thinner chili, add more water at the end of step 5.
