Vegetarian Chili

This vegetarian chili is a Cerrato favorite! I’ve passed this recipe along to many friends and family over the years, because it’s just so good and so simple to make. Enjoy leftovers with tortilla chips as nachos!

This dish is perfect to make ahead of time, as the more time it sits, the more time the flavors blend together. Thank you to Racheal Ray for this YUM-MO recipe!

  • 1 large organic red pepper, chopped
  • 1 large organic green pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped

  • 1 (15oz) can organic crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (15oz) can black beans
  • 1 (15oz) can dark red kidney beans
  • 2 tblsp ground cumin
  • 2 tblsp chili powder
  • a dash of  hot pepper sauce or cayenne pepper


  1. Heat olive oil in deep pot and saute onion, peppers and garlic for 5 minutes or until softened. Deglaze pan with broth, add tomatoes, black beans, red kidney beans and stir to combine.

    1. this was originally a three bean chili but personally, I don’t like refried beans so I just did black beans and kidney beans. This chili is soooo good. It always hits the spot and the leftovers are even better because the flavors blend together so nicely.
