  • 1 pound of red beans or kidney beans
  • 1 chopped green pepper
  • 2 chopped medium-sized onions
  • 2 chopped stalks of celery
  • 6 peeled and chopped tomatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups of tomato puree
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable salt
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder (or more if you like it hot)
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano


  1. Pick over and wash 1 pound of red beans or kidney beans, and soak them overnight. Then cook ’em for about 1 hour, or until they’re soft, in just enough water to cover the beans.
  2. Add green pepper, onions, celery and peeled tomatoes (all chopped), then tomato puree, minced garlic cloves, vegetable salt, chili powder and oregano.
  3. Let the vegetables cook just long enough to be slightly softened, while remaining crisp, then dish out your chili!
  4. Garnish it with a little grated cheese, and we guarantee you that you won’t miss the “carne” at all!
