Your Nugget of Nutritional Info for this post:

Kidney Beans are the focus of this HUB's nutritional nugget. Packed with cholesterol lowering fiber that also helps regulate blood sugar, 1 cup of the beans provides almost 200% of your daily requirement for: molybdenum. This trace mineral helps rid the body of sulfites, a commonly used preservative added to processed "fresh" foods, such as delicatessen offerings and salad bars. A great source of manganese and protein, too, the beans pump you with iron and help you feel full!

The Results!

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: 4 soup bowl-sized servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs tomatoes, of choice
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 anaheim chiles
  • 2 jalepenos
  • 2 cans kidney beans
  • 1 cup red wine, of choice & optional
  • 4-5 (8 oz) cans NS tomato sauce
  • 2 TBSP. sugar
  • 3-4 TBSP. chili powder
  • 2-4 TBSP. olive oil
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • ½ cup cheddar
  • 1 cube beef bouillon, optional, & sub beef stock concentrate if desired
  • 4-5 shallots, (@ 1 cup)
  • 1 bulb garlic

How to Do it:

  1. Since you're working with hot peppers, I advise you glove your hands for the first part of preparation. (else, the oils from the peppers can seep into pores and sting for hours!)
  2. Gather your peppers.
  3. Slice, seed, and flatten before placing on double-thick foil. Place under broiler until skins blacken. Let cool a bit before...
  4. ...slipping a sharp paring knife between skin and pepper, and delicately removing the peel. Chop peeled peepers into bite-sized strips, and set aside.
  5. Gather your shallots & garlic.
  6. TIP: if you lightly tap your garlic cloves with a meat mallet, it will "crack" the peel, and enable easy peeling.
  7. Mince shallots and garlic separately, and set aside.
  8. Gather your tomatoes. Slice and seed, chop and set aside.
  9. Heat olive oil to sizzling in kettle.
  10. Add shallots, and cook until translucent.
  11. Add garlic.
  12. Add wine.
  13. Add sugar.
  14. Add bouillon or concentrate. Simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes to cook off alcohol in wine.
  15. Add tomato sauces.
  16. Add tomatoes.
  17. Add peppers.
  18. Add beans.
  19. Add chili powder, and simmer for another 10 minutes.
  20. Dish into bowls, and top with shredded Cheddar cheese, and cilantro. Crackers are a tasty addition, and so are corn cakes--a recipe I'll post soon!!

Top with Cheddar Shreds & Fresh Cilantro!

      thank you, Vacation Lady, but I have to credit the tomatoes for making it look good. That vibrant fruit is just such a great "model". :) I hope you are having a fabulous Friday! :)

      Hi Eiddwen,

      Thank you so much for saying. I confess, I was pretty happy when the Chili name occurred to me. I hope your holidays are going great! :)

      Hi Colin epigramman!

      That is just the nicest, and most encouraging thing to say, Colin & kitties. It is 8 pm here in Cally, balmy and lovely wind blowing...

      That recipe sounds grand! Is it a Hub? Because I would lub....and yes slow-cooking makes for an awesome result. I have a Chili Verde recipe that bears this out, but like to spotlight the veggie recipes. (animal advocate, and all...:)

      My kitties are: Dharma and Baby Huey! Have a great "time period" (day, afternoon, night--whenever this finds you)

      Hello Karen from Colin and his cats, Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel, from lake erie time ontario canada 5:56pm and I love making chili (Colin's honey garlic chili) in my slow cooker and my famous recipe is with honey and raw garlic and chick peas with the rest of the ingredients so naturally I was curious about your recipe.

      You certainly know how to put together a world class cooking and preparation hub together - with eye catching images and easy to follow instructions. Hubbravo from the epi-man and you should be writing your own cook book because you have style, panache and great taste!

      I will be bookmarking your hubs for future reference, thank you.

      Wow, what a beautiful hub! I'm not a chili fan as I don't trust the minced meat available at the grocery shops (you never know what you're going to get). Your recipe looks very appealing and I'll definitely keep it for my collection. Voted up!
