Vegetable Chili

This is a staple in our house – unfortunately it looks like the pictures are broken in this old post, but you guys know what chili looks like, right?  It’s chili.

The only major change I made this time around was to use pinto beans instead of kidney beans.  Otherwise, this is the same chili I’ve been making for years, the same chili that my mom made for me as a kid.  Every year around this time, I pull out my fall jacket and long sleeved shirts, and start to crave this chili.

Chicken Fajita Chili

My brain is too fried to say anything funny or interesting about this chili.  It’s a chicken chili, with bell peppers in it, hence “fajita chili.”  It’s from a magazine, don’t know which one.  Been in the index card box a while, and we make it pretty often because it’s quick and easy and tasty and falls nicely into the “spicy bowl of stuff over rice” genre that we love so much.

Cincinnati-Style Vegetable Chili

This is a vegetarian version of my Cincinnati-Style Chili.  (Vegan, actually, if you don’t put cheese on top.)  You can make it fat-free by omitting the olive oil, but you won’t get the flavor benefits of the fat-soluble elements in the chili powder or cumin.  This is the first time I have ever made it in a slow-cooker, and it was quite successful!  The beef version of this chili really does need high heat in the beginning to brown the meat and develop a fond, but the veggies did quite well simply simmering on low for about 8 hours while I went about my day.  The other change I made on this round was to use a can of crushed tomatoes instead of diced, which I think was a good change.
