Sultry No-Meat Chili
4 chicken flavored boullion cubes or the equivalent amount of boullion powder.
- 3 cups of water.
- 8 oz. tomato sauce.
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon of minced garlic.
- 8-10 tablespoons of hot chili powder (I use Tone's brand)
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 1/4 cup finely chopped or grated carrot
- 2 medium diced tomatoes
- 1 can of pinto beans
- 1 can of black beans
- 1/2 cup of bacon bits Just kidding!
First, make your boullion with cubes or powder and the water.
Now add tomato sauce, onion, and garlic.
Next, add your chili powder. Start with 8 tablespoons and go from there.
Bring it back to a boil.
Now add the carrot and tomatoes.
Turn your heat down to low and let it simmer for about 45 minutes.
Ten minutes before your chili is done, add the beans. Now is also the time to thicken it if you wish. Mix about 1/4 cup of masa flour with enough water to make a thick but flowable mixture, and stir it in.
When your chili is done, you can add montery jack cheese and/or sour cream. You can also garnish your bowl with cilantro leaves.
