This is a great recipe to make without much advance planning as most of the ingredients are already in your kitchen. A can of beans, a can of crushed tomatoes, a pepper, some Morningstar crumblers (if you’re feeling rich, that shit’s expensive), some spices and before you know it you’re eating a bowl of chili. Lucky you.
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup of chopped onions
2 stalks of celery diced
3 cloves of garlic
1 bay leaf (what the heck do these guys do?)
1 package of Morningstar crumblers
1 green pepper
1 small can of corn
1 big azz can of crushed tomatoes
1 can of white beans
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
Heat the olive oil in a big soup pot and add the onions, bay leaf, cumin, red pepper flakes, and salt. Cook until onion is soft, then add green pepper, celery, garlic and cook for 5 more minutes. Add Morningstar crumblers, turn heat down and let it cook for another 5 minutes covered. Take the cover off and add your chili powder, can of tomatoes and white beans and bring to a boil. Lower hear and simmer for 35 minutes. Stir in corn and cook for another 5 minutes. Taste that shiz and adjust to your liking. I served with some shredded cheddar (the real kind not the money kind) and a dollop of sour cream or you could use Greek yogurt.
The scallions are a classy touch.
