Greg’s Favorite Chili

Greg doesn’t like chili. Because of this weird fact, I pretty much never make chili. However, this week I had a bad hankering, so I had to make a batch. Greg was a good sport and went along with it. I modified a recipe from Cooking Light, and it was incredibly good. Actually, it was so good that Greg liked it, and I made an extra batch to stick in the freezer.

Greg’s Favorite Chili

  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 c vegetable broth
  • 1 12oz can beer (I used PBR)
  • 1 1/2 c cooked chickpeas
  • 1 1/2 c cooked red beans
  • 1 1/2 c cooked navy beans
  • 1 8oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 15oz can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1/2 can chipotle salsa
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher flake salt

Spray the bottom of a large stock pot with cooking spray (or you can use a few teaspoons of olive oil). Add the peppers and onion, and cook over medium-high heat for about 8 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Add the beer and vegetable broth, followed by the beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chipotle salsa, and chili powder. Simmer until the chili thickens, at least 20 minutes.
