Okay, I am no professional chef, but I have been practicing. Once in a while I make things that I am so proud of I feel hope for my cooking future and this chili recipe is one of them! It’s sooo good I have to share. Bon Appetit!
4 Bean Vegetarian Beer Chili
1 green pepper & 1 red pepper
1 large yellow onion
2 cloves garlic
Chili seasoning packet (with Masa) I used this
, go for quality!
1 bottle of beer ( I used an amber ale)
1 Tbsp. vegetable base
2 cans black beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can re-fried beans
1 can crushed tomatoes
Saute minced garlic, chopped onion, half of each pepper chopped, jalapeño chopped and seeded in a few tbsp. of olive oil until vegetables are softened
Add beer and 2-3 cups of water with a tablespoon of vegetable bullion, bring to a boil
Add seasoning packet, all of your beans (drained and rinsed) and whole can of tomatoes (re-fried beans add thickness)
Let simmer for 15 minutes, then add your masa mixed with water (should be a pourable but thick paste) also add crushed red pepper flakes for desired spiciness
Simmer soup for 30 minutes, soup should be thick and not overly watery.
Serve with cheese and sour cream as toppings
