Chili Vegetarian-Style

Chili Vegetarian-StyleA hearty three bean, corn and bell pepper chili, perfect for large gatherings.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 jalapeño pepper, seeds removed, fine chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/3 cups red & yellow bell peppers, chopped
6 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1/3 cup Splenda® Granular
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes with thick tomato purée
2 (15-ounce) can black beans, undrained
2 (15-ounce) cans dark red kidney beans, undrained
1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, undrained
1 (10-ounce) package frozen corn kernels
Salt to taste (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a large, non stick, stock pot heat olive oil. Sauté jalapeño, onions, and red and yellow peppers over medium heat until onions are translucent, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and slowly bring to a boil. Cover pot and simmer on low heat for 20 minutes. Serve hot.

Makes 16 servings.


  • If spicier chile is preferred, increase the ground cayenne red pepper to 1 teaspoon, and increase the chili powder to 7 teaspoons.
  • This chile, like most chiles, tastes best the day after it is made. Refrigerate chile in covered pot overnight. Bring to a boil over a low heat, stirring constantly.
