Gluten-Free Vegetarian Chili

Gluten-Free Veggie Chili

Gluten-Free Vegetarian Chili

Choice of Ingredients (1/2 to 1 cup of each):
Chopped onions
Chopped celery
Chopped red peppers
Chopped green peppers
Sliced carrots

Heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and add your choice of veggies.  Saute gently for about 20 minutes.

Add:
3 crushed garlic cloves
1 large can diced tomato
1 can tomato paste and 1 can water
1 can (more or less) of red kidney beans
1 package Old El Paso Chili Seasoning (double check to make sure ingredients are gluten-free or use seasonings of your choice)

Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 30 more minutes.  Enjoy with rice or gluten-free bread.

Optional - Add:
1/2 cube of Baker's unsweetened chocolate and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
OR
1/2 cube of Semi-Sweet Baker's Chocolate

The addition of the chocolate adds a rich flavour and nice texture to the chili but is not mandatory.

If you are not vegetarian, you can add half a pound of cooked ground beef.
