Vegetarian Chili

And just to review what 100 Ingredients is all about …

We’re not going head to head with Bon Appetit. Tasty, healthy, big flavors that only use ingredients on the one shopping list for the year. YES. That said, this very simple Chili recipe has nothing to apologize for, and when served with cornbread or cornbread croutons on a Friday night after a long week, all is right with the world.Total cook time, 30 minutes

  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
