Vegetarian Chili

As a vegetarian, I have so many recipes for  vegetarian chili. Most of the time I create it as I go, without a recipe. It's usually based on ingredients that I have available.
I thought I'd post a recipe for beginning cooks or for those that don't have a good vegetarian chili recipe!

3 - (15oz.) cans of Black Beans (drain and rinse 2 of the cans, not the third one) Or a combination of 1 can of dark red kidney beans, 1 can of light red kidney beans and 1 can of black beans, all drained.
1 large Vidalia Onion, diced
3 Garlic Cloves, minced
2 TBS Vegetable Oil
4 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/4 tsp Salt
2 (14.5 oz.) cans of Ro-Tel Tomatoes with Green Chiles.
1 - 12oz. package of Meatless Burger Crumbles
 1 Vegetable Bouillon Cube
2 C Water

Garnish Options:
Sour Cream
Shredded Cheese
Diced Avocado
Pickled Nacho Jalape├▒os

In a Cast Iron Dutch Oven on medium heat:
Heat the Oil
Onion
Garlic
Salute until tender for 5 minutes.

Mix in:
Chili Powder
Cumin
Pepper
Salt
Saute 3 minutes longer.

Add:
Tomatoes
Burger Crumbles
Bouillon
Beans
Water

Bring to a boil on medium high heat.
Reduce heat to medium low.
Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Ladle into bowls and top with your choice of garnishes.

Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
