Hi Everyone! Here you have another Vegetarian Meal, super easy, and delicious!
It is filled with tons of flavor, proteins and lots of vitamins too! Really warm and hearty, you wont miss the meat all!

Serves 4-6
Ingredients:
1 14.5oz can kidney beans
1 14.5oz can red beans
1 14.5oz can black beans
1 14.5oz can vegetable broth
1 14.5oz can of corn kernels
1 14.5 can diced tomatoes with jalapeno peppers
1 1/2 cups chopped bell peppers (frozen or fresh,any color)
1/2 cup chopped onions
2 minced garlic cloves
1 minced jalapeno pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons dry oregano
3-4 tablespoons of chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1 1/2 cups of water (optional)
2 bay leaves
salt to taste


For garnish:
Tortilla chips
cheddar cheese
sour cream
chopped cilantro

Rinse and drain the beans, season them with a little bit of salt and 1 tablespoon of dry oregano, stir together, and set aside until ready to use them. (I used 1½ tspns salt)

In a large sauce pan or pot, on medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, also add in the minced garlic, chopped onion, minced jalapeno pepper, and 2 bay leaves. Season with 1 teaspoon of ground cumin and 2 tablespoons of chili powder, stir together and cook for 3 minutes just so the garlic and onion can become a little soft.

After 3 minutes or so, add in the chopped Bell peppers and continue to cook for 2 more minutes.

Add in the can of chopped tomatoes and vegetable broth, simmer on medium-high heat for 6 minutes, just so the vegetable broth can absorb all the extra flavors.

After 6 minutes, add in the beans, corn kernels and 1½ cups of water, stir, and season with 1 more tablespoon of chili powder, 1 tablespoon of dry oregano and a pinch of cayenne pepper, stir once again, and cover with a lid. Bring to a boil.

After it comes to a boil, taste the flavor and add any salt or more chili powder if needed. (if you do add any more seasoning, let it boil for 2 more minutes.)

And that's it. Serve with Tortilla chips, topped it with shredded cheddar (or vegan) cheese, and garnish with fresh cilantro and sour cream!

Enjoy!
