Very Simple Vegetarian Chili
one can of tomato sauce
one fresh tomato, diced
2 cans of kidney beans
one half onion, finely diced
tablespoon garlic (fresh is best)
at least one tablespoon chili powder (to taste)
one tablespoon cumin
one celery stalk
Spray some pam in the bottom of the sauce pan, and then cook onions, celery and garlic until they begin to carmelize. Add all other ingredients, bring to a simmer, and its done!
This is the mild recipe, so the spices should be adjusted to taste. I always throw in other ingredients if I have them on hand. This is great if you don't have much time.
