White Bean Chili

This is a chili recipe I have been working on for a while. The fire roasted tomatoes and tomatillo salsa bring everything together nicely. You can add Gardein sliced scallopini or any other chicken substitute you want for added protein.

White Bean Chili
1 bunch green onion diced
1/2 red pepper diced
1/2 green pepper diced
1/2 orange pepper diced
1 jalapeno pepper diced
1 15oz can white beans
1 15oz can fire roasted tomatoes
2/3 cup veggie broth
2/3 cup tomatillo salsa
1 tbs lime juice
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tbs cumin
1 tbs chili powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 tbs soy sauce
Salt & Pepper -amount of your choice

-Heat olive oil in a stock pot and saute green onion and garlic with 1 tsp cumin & chili powder until soft.
-Add bell & jalapeno peppers and stir for about 4 minutes, tossing in the soy sauce two minutes after the peppers begin to cook
-Pour in veggie stock, tomatillo salsa, tomatoes, white beans, lime juice and spices. Continue cooking at a low heat for ten minutes.
-Remove from heat and stir in cilantro, reserving a bit for garnish if you like things pretty.

Thanks, I love white beans too. Like I said try it with a chicken substitute too, if you have that in your fridge.
