Chili has always been one of my favorites. This recipe has added liquid smoke for a hint of a smoky taste.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of cooked beans (or 2 cans drained and rinsed)

  • 1 large onion

  • 4 cloves of garlic

  • 1 bell pepper

  • 2 jalapenos (stems and seeds removed)

  • 1 28 oz can of crushed or pureed tomatoes

  • 1/2 tablespoon of liquid smoke

  • 3 cups of water or veggie broth

  • 1 ½ teaspoons of chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon of coconut palm sugar

  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons of cumin

  • ½ teaspoon of oregano

  • ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika

  • 1 teaspoons of salt

  • Pepper to taste

Preparation

In a large pot over medium heat, saute onions for 1 to 2 minutes. Add chopped bell pepper, jalapenos, and minced garlic. Cook for 1 to 2 more minutes. Add remaining ingredients, increase heat to a simmer for about 30 minutes. Pour half chili into another bowl. Use an immersion blender on half of the chili then add the other half back in. Stir, let cool and enjoy!
