Vegetarian Chili

 Today is a repeat recipe that I posted a while back. I made it again this week and I loved it so much that I decided to repost it. A vegetarian chili is perfect for those that want to eat a little lighter. This recipe is especially easy to make as I used the ingredients that I already had in my freezer and pantry. Not to mention, this is a one pot meal which means easy clean up!! A healthy and low maintenance meal is always a favorite with me!

  • Bag of frozen onions and peppers (bought in the frozen food aisle)
  • Taco seasoning packet (have 2 of the packets on hand just in case you need some more flavor)
  • Corn Starch
  • Can of corn (15 oz)
  • Can of black beans (15oz)
  • Can of pinto beans (15oz)
  • Spray a deep pan with pam and place on medium to high heat
  • Pour in about 3/4 of the frozen onions and peppers
  • While the onions and peppers are cooking, rinse the black beans and pinto beans in a strainer
  • Pour the beans into the pan with the onions and peppers
  • Pour the entire can of corn into the pan including the liquid
  • It should look liquidy at this point but that is good!
  • Sprinkle in the taco seasoning and let the mixture boil for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • In a small dish, mix a tablespoon of corn starch into water
  • Pour corn starch mixture into the pan, stirring frequently
  • If the corn starch does not thicken the chili to your liking then you can add some more!
  • Serve with your favorite chili toppings
