Cheryl, Thought I'd give you my recipe for Vegetable Chili, since you
wanted to know what fresh veggies to include. This doesn't need meat at
all. Unfortunately, I can't find the card but here's the most of it -
This recipe grows as you go. Keep that in mind.
Black olives sliced
Sliced or grated carrots
Big can of tomatoes and the juice (fresh if you feel like skinning them)
Three 16 oz. cans of beans - black, kidney, pinto, a mixture - doesn't
matter really what kind - use the liquid if need be
Big can of tomato puree (maybe two cans)
Seasoning - about a tablespoon of cumin, TB of chili powder or to taste,
salt, celery seed (1/4 tsp or a little more), black and white pepper to
taste, oregano (tsp)
You saute the veggies til soft. Start with the harder veggies first and
proceed to the olives, then add the beans, tomato sauces and seasoning,
heating it good through.
Cheese (Jack usually) on top for protein or if you must a little ground
meat (turkey or beef)
It's different and good. You can't hardly mess it up, but be warned - it
seems to grow out of the pot.
And for fun -
Chunk up uncooked pork (roast, or buy stir fry chunks if you're short on
time) and brown in a little oil. Set aside or move to outside of pan and
saute diced onions in a little oil til cooked, and starting to brown. Add
1 can diced green chilies (those little cans), add Pace Picante Sauce
(roughly a cup for every pound of meat), a little water if you need it and
heat through. Good on eggs, in burritos, Add taco fixings (avocado,
cheese, olives, lettuce, tomatoes whatever) as desired.
I haven't included specific measurements because you can grow this for
whatever size group you have. For the 4 of us - I cut up a small pork
This one's easy and you can't hardly mess it up.
