Black Bean Chili Over Rice

I originally found this recipe at VegWeb.com . I have made it a few times and finally tweaked it to our liking.  It is very satisfying and great for those cold Sunday game days in front of the boob tube (or boob plasma? eh, nevermind).

What you will need:

3 tsp olive oil (we used our Habanero infused olive oil – for added heat)

1 medium onion, diced

1 red pepper, diced

1.5 large carrots, grated with a microplane (this helps to add some thickness to the chili)

6 lg jalapeno, optional  (we like heat!)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 Tbsp chili powder

1 tsp cumin

1 – 15oz can fire roasted tomatoes (YUM!)

1 cup veggie stock

2 – 15oz cans black beans, rinsed

1 cup frozen corn OR 1 can Mexicorn

salt and pepper

Cayenne pepper to add at the end if more heat is needed.

What to do:

In a medium stainless steel pan, heat the oil until hot.

Add onions, peppers, jalapeno and carrots  and cook until tender.

Add the garlic and cook for an additional 30 seconds or so.

Add the chili powder and cumin and cook another 1-2 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, stock, beans, and corn.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium/medium low to simmer for about 15 minutes.

Add salt, pepper to taste and the cayenne if you require more heat.

Prepare the rice according to the package instructions. I used left over veggie stock instead of water.

Scoop the chili over a bowl of rice and enjoy!

OH! Don’t forget the cheddar cheese!

Cheers!
