I see many recipes for chili, but no thread devoted specifically to this wonderful stew. Doesn't matter if it has meat in it or vegetarian or vegan, lets see some favorite recipes! I've posted this recipe before, but keeping with the idea of having a single thread with recipes, here it is again. BLACK BEAN, YELLOW PEPPER, AND CUMIN CHILI Ingredients 6 tblsp olive oil 1 12-oz onion coarsely chopped (about 3 cups) 1 large yellow bell pepper, coarsely chopped 1-1/2 tblsp cumin seeds 4 tsp minced canned chipotle chilies 2-4 garlic cloves (to taste), chopped fine 3 15-oz cans black beans, well drained 2 14-1/2 oz cans diced tomatoes with roasted garlic 2 cups vegetable broth Directions 1) Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. 2) Add onion, bell pepper, and cumin seeds.
