Easy Vegetarian Chili

It's well into the 80's every day here, so not sure why any kind of chili sounded appealing, but I went with it and loved the results. This is seriously easy, very satisfying, delicious and as a pleasant bonus - healthy!

Easy Vegetarian Chili:
(serves 4)

1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can white beans (drained and rinsed)
1 28 oz can whole tomatoes & juice (no salt added)
3 c corn (fresh or canned/frozen, no sugar or salt added)
12 oz water or beer
1 chipotle chili, roughly chopped
2 tbs chili powder
1 tbs cumin
Salt and pepper to taste (the beans have salt, so you may not need much)
2 tbs (or to taste) hot sauce
Sour cream, greek yogurt, crema, cheese, etc. for serving
Snipped chives for garnish

Combine, heat, simmer until desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve!

This looks so delicious, and really healthy too :)

I often crave this kind of warm, comforting food when it hot, although I think it's an odd thing to want then too!

That chili looks tasty. I like the corn in it. It would add a touch of sweetness.

I LOVE the addition of beer in chili...and kielbasa! Add the chipotle and you've got me hooked.
Now about the weather in the 80's...I think I could live with that after the winter we just got over!

Wow! Fast, easy and delicious. Makes a lot of chili. I used fresh corn cut from the cob and since I like things pretty hot, I used a lot of hot sauce. Smokin' hot! I sent the recipe to some friends. It's great with the big scoop of sour cream and chopped green onions.
Great recipe!
