Rating0  Votes0


1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/4-1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chile or cayenne pepper, or to taste
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 15-ounce can dark red kidney beans, rinsed
1 15-ounce can small white beans, such as navy beans, rinsed
1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
3 cups water
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper




Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until very soft and just beginning to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic, chili powder, cumin and chipotle (or cayenne) to taste and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir in canned and fresh tomatoes, kidney, white and black beans, water and pepper. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chili has reduced slightly, 10 to 15 minutes.
