1 (16-ounce) can Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
5 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
How to Make It
Place a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion and peppers, and sauté 10 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Add chili powder and next 6 ingredients (chili powder through tomatoes); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Ladle into soup bowls; sprinkle with cheese.
I use this recipe as my base and add two links of hot Italian sausage to make it "almost Vegetarian Chili". I also swap 1 teaspoon of cumin for the Italian seasoning, and add a few glugs of red wine while it's simmering. I also like to stir in a handful of chopped cilantro if I have it around. Delish!
