How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, chili powder, and cumin and sauté until onions are soft. Add the tomatoes and 1 cup of water. Bring to a simmer, partially cover with a lid, and cook 10 minutes. Add the beans and return to a simmer; continue cooking, uncovered, 20 minutes, until the chili is thick. Remove from heat and stir in the vinegar. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Step 2

While the chili cooks, prepare the polenta according to package directions (5 to 8 minutes), and stir in the butter. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper. Divide between 4 bowls and ladle chili over top. Spoon a little salsa on top, if desired.
