Mmm chili

I was fantasizing about this pseudo-chili all day at work today (yes, I know that's strange) so when I got home I made it for dinner. I found the recipe on someone's blog a year or two ago, and while it may not be the healthiest thing--in fact I know it's not--it's really delicious and only takes about 20 minutes to make.

First you chop up an onion and a green pepper and sauté them in olive oil for a few minutes.

Then, in goes a can of spicy tomatoes.

Then a can each of black beans, white beans and pinto beans.

A quart of vegetable broth (or chicken broth if you're a meat-eater). This amount of broth makes it kind of soupy; if you wanted it thicker you could use half that much and it would be fine.

A tablespoon of chili powder and a teaspoon of cumin. Also salt and pepper, which I didn't photograph, and I usually throw in about a teaspoon of crushed red pepper (the kind you get at pizza restaurants) because I like things hot.

Annnnnd a cup of frozen corn.

Bring it all to a boil and then let it simmer until it looks like this.

Finally, the toppings: cheese, sour cream, chopped tomatoes (you could use salsa too, only I didn't have any), olives and the all-important Fritos.

Om nom slurrrrp drool. And TC doesn't like any kind of chili and had leftover pasta instead, so it's ALL for me.
