Ingredients

  • 16 ounces baby bella mushrooms
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder I used McCormick Organics Chili Seasoning Mix
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 16 ounces chili beans in sauce
  • 10 ounces diced tomatoes and chiles
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar or to taste

Instructions

  1. Finely chop the mushrooms and bell pepper (I used a food processor).
  2. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil. Add the finely chopped mushrooms and bell pepper. Saute for a minute until the oil is well distributed, then add the chili spice mix. Continue to saute until mushrooms and bell pepper pieces are soft.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. Reduce heat and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Taste and add a pinch more brown sugar if you like.
