I've always loved vegetables but now I am trying to lose weight so more veggies the better. But chili without meat...I'm not quite there yet.
For tonight's dish, I used a couple of pork chops diced up a lot smaller than bite size;
2-3 cloves garlic,
2 small onions,
1 green pepper,
6 jalapeno peppers,
1 cup celery,
2 tbsp olive oil,
3/4 cup red wine,
salt, pepper, chili powder, brown sugar and
3 cans of beans (not pictured) - kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans ( more or different - as you like)
1 large can of crushed tomatoes (not pictured).
saute the onion in 1 tbsp of olive oil for a few minutes;
add the green pepper, jalapeno pepper, saute a few minutes;
add the celery and the zucchini; saute until heated through, a few minutes; add salt.
return the meat to the pot, add the tomato and beans;
add a tablespoon brown sugar and chili powder to taste
Serve with grated cheddar, jack or other cheese of your choice. Salad and wine and homemade bread completed tonight's dinner.
