A friend requested the veggie chili recipe, so here it is:

*I usually double the recipe when I want to to eat it for while.

1 tbl olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 large carrot, diced
1-2 Serrano chili's, diced (2 if you like it hot!)
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbl chili powder
1-2 tbl Cayenne pepper
2 tsp of Cumin
1 (15 oz) can tomatoes, diced
1 cup of tomato juice
1 (28 oz) can black beans
1 can of corn or fresh corn from one ear, not cooked
Salt and Fresh ground pepper
1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro, chopped
1 large spoonful of ff sour cream (optional)

In a large stock pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions, peppers, carrots, garlic and cook until tender, about 5 min, stirring often. Add dry spices and stir to coat. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes more until the spice smell grows stronger. Add tomatoes(don't drain), tomato juice, black beans(don't drain) and corn to stock. Bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and add sour cream and cilantro.

Oh my goodness Daphne... I know I was supposed to get this to you forever ago! I made a few changes from before. This recipe is the 'lower calorie' version. The old recipe had a can of kidney beans and garbonzo beans to give it more protein punch. My favorite ingredient is the Serrano Chili pepper!
