Two-Bean Chili with anaheims and portabellos
Chili is not a meal you make in small batches. This chili definitely serves more than 4, which is why it's perfect for repurposing into our chili enchiladas tomorrow night. Feel free to play with spices to find a chili flavor that you and your whole family will love.

- Cilantro - 1/4 bunch, chopped
- Diced tomatoes with green chilies - 1 can, drained
- Kidney beans (14oz / 397g can) - 1 can, rinsed and drained
- Black beans (14 oz / 397 g can) - 1 can, rinsed and drained

- Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add in cooking oil and then garlic to heated oil. Once you can smell the garlic, add in onions with a dash of salt. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes.

Very tasty! My wife really liked all the vegetables in this, but we still browned a pound of ground beef with the onions. To cut down on the soupiness, we added 2 tablespoons corn meal as it was cooking.
Really flavorful, I did double most of the spices. Avocado is a must! It adds a nice creaminess.
Real good! It's a little more soupy than I expected but it was still delicious! Will definitely make again.
I'm not sure why this is called "chili." True, it has chili powder in it, but calling the dish "chili" is like calling tomato basil soup "marinara." That said, it's a pretty tasty bean soup. And with all the recipes here, I have double the predicted cooking time. Chopping a whole onion, peppers, zucchini, avocado, mushrooms, and cilantro and rinsing and draining three canned foods takes a while (for me at least).
This ended up more like a soup rather than a chilli. Nobody was really excited about it but it could have been that our expectations of what chilli is, is very different.
This was good, but nothing I would rave over or tell others they must make. But we're a meat-and-potatoes family, so I'm not surprised it left us feeling like something was missing. But we're determined to expand our horizons and try all the different meals Jess has to offer!
