South of the Border Veggie Chili
Contributed by:
  • 1â�„4 cup olive oil
  • 21â�„2 cups diced yellow onions
  • 3â�„4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1â�„2 cup diced yellow bell pepper
  • 1 large or 2 small jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced
  • 2 TBS minced cilantro stems
  • 11â�„2 TBS minced garlic
  • 2 TBS chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1â�„2 tsp. chopped oregano
  • 11â�„2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 6 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 4 cups chili beans
  • 4 cups pinto beans
  • 1 cup yellow corn
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • Sour cream, grated sharp cheddar cheese, chopped green onions and fried tortilla chips or strips, for serving
Preheat the oven to the broil setting.
In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and saute the onion and bell peppers until soft and lightly caramelized, about 6 minutes. Add the jalapeño, cilantro stems, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano and 11�2 teaspoons of the salt and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and vegetable stock, bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Add the beans and corn and continue to cook at a simmer until the flavors come together, 30 to 40 minutes longer.
Serve the chili hot, with bowls of the sour cream, cheddar cheese, green onions, chopped cilantro and crispy tortilla chips or strips on the table to use as garnish, if desired.
