    Muy caliente!

    Made veggie chili last night. Since I'm a lifetime vegetarian, I have never before made chili of any kind, and had never become acquainted with chili powder. Some sheltered existence!

    My SO had printed out the recipe, and grabbed most of the ingredients out of the cupboards for me.

    I grabbed the "Ground Cayenne Red Pepper" she had put out for me & thought it must be teh same as "Chili Powder."

    It most definitely is not. (I did have the sense not to put in the 2 tablespoons of "Chili Powder" that the recipe called for--but it was probably a good 2 teaspoons that I mixed in.)

    Flavor was excellent--but it was 3.5 Alarm Chili--best served with something to cut the hot!!

    Vegetarian chili is the best, and so easy:

    1 can black beans
    1 can corn
    1 can diced tomatoes
    1 small can tomato paste
    chopped garlic
    chopped red onion
    smoked chipolte powder
    onion powder
    fresh rosemary

    Simmer all together for a half hour. Serve with some shredded cheddar.

    2TB of Chili power? Must be a mild chili recipe....

    2 tsp of red pepper still is not "HOT" but should give a bit of kick...

    Sheltered? I guess it will be hot.... HFTU

    Make some corn bread served with cane syrup to cut the heat, apply as needed.

    poast recipe, please?

    Serve it on a baked potato. IME, chilli gets hotter as it sits in the fridge. Mine is always better the day after I make it.

    Very true. I think most food with lots of flavors coming together work better after sitting awhile.

    We make veg chili a lot and use a recipie pretty similar to Andrea's, except we use two cans of beans (one black and one kidney) and usually throw some sliced jalapenos in. Sometimes if we are looking to get crazy, we'll add some cubed sweet potatoes or tofu.
