While the cat's away....the mice make chili!

Matt's out of town for a few weeks, so I took the opportunity to make one of my favorite chili recipes. He doesn't like it much because there is no meat in it {which is why I like it so much!}. It's delish & makes a lot....I'll be eating it all week, which is fine by me!

Half-Hour Vegetarian Chili
from the Recipe Rescue Cookbook

1 TB. Vegetable oil
3 Onions, chopped
1 Carrot, chopped
1 TB. Minced jalapeno pepper (can leave out)
2 cloves Garlic, minced
3-4 tsp. Chili powder
1 tsp. Cumin
1 can Chopped tomatoes (28 oz.)
1 can Chopped tomatoes (14 oz.)
1 tsp. Brown sugar
2 cans Kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup bulgur

1. Heat oil over medium heat; add onions, carrots, jalapenos, garlic, chili powder and cumin.
2. Saute 5-7 minutes. Add tomatoes and sugar; cook for 5 minutes over high heat.
3. Stir in beans and bulgur and reduce to low heat.
4. Simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes.
5. Garnish with plain yogurt, scallions, and cilantro if desired.


  1. I always like chili this time of year. Micah doesn't get as excited about it either (even the meat kind!)

  2. Can you teach me what bulgar is please? I'm not sure.

  3. bulgur is made from whole wheat but is made so it cooks faster. you can usually find it on the baking isle by the flour, etc. i get the "Bob's Red Mill" brand.
