Easy Veggie Chili

I've had this recipe (and many variations of it) in my repetoire for several years now, but I'm just now getting around to actually writing down what I do when I make this super easy and delicious veggie chili. This makes a big batch of chili so it's perfect for having leftovers for another meal or bringing for lunches. You can mix it up by adding different veggies, beans, herbs, spices, etc., as I have been known to do.

Easy Veggie Chili


Ingredients:
2 cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 28 oz can hominy, drained and rinsed
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 cup frozen corn kernels
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, to taste--these are super spicy! 
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup vegetable broth
garnishes: greek yogurt and chopped red onion

Directions:
1. Combine all ingredients in a large pot, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, and cook for anywhere between 20 minutes and 2 hours--the longer the better!
2. Taste and adjust seasonings.




Cornbread


Ingredients:
2 eggs
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
1/2 cup brown rice flour (or whole wheat)
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:
1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F, spray a 9-inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (eggs through corn).
3. In another large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour through salt).
4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring just until combined.
5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 22-24 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
