Hot Chili


4 tablespoons cooking oil

1 tablespoon crushed chilis (or to taste)

1 tablespoon oregano

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon dried parsley

2 large onions, chopped

4 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

1 green pepper, chopped

2 large carrots, chopped

1 large can tomato sauce

1 large can tomatoes, chopped

1 cup cooked kidney beans (soak cup overnight then boil 1 hr)

1 cup niblet corn (I use frozen)

cup couscous

cup soy grits + bulgar (generally more bulgar than soy grits)


Chop everything first. In Dutch oven, heat oil. Add spices and stir for a few minutes. Add onions, garlic, carrots and green pepper, stir for a few minutes. At this point all veggies should be soft. Add everything else and simmer for about an hour. It may be necessary to add some water since the couscous and bulgar will absorb some.
