Spicy & Sweet 3 Bean Chili

Three beans, they’re delicious!

1 medium purple onion, diced
1 lb carrots, peeled & diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 red bell peppers, diced
1 28oz can Muir Glen Fire Roasted diced tomatoes
1 14 oz can Muir Glen Fire Roasted diced tomatoes
1 15oz can cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
1 15oz can great northern beans, drained & rinsed
1 150z can navy beans, drained & rinsed
~2 tbsp olive oil (or cooking oil of your choice)
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cumin
2.5-3 tbsp chili powder (we use a mixture of smoked chili powder & la mesa dark chili powder)
1+ tsp cayenne (or less, if you’re a wuss)
1/2 tsp ancho chili powder
1 tbsp kosher salt (to taste)

Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, & dry ingredients (chili powders, cumin, cocoa powder, & cinnamon) minus the salt (which you add at the end); sweat these for a few minutes. Add carrots & sweat for a few more minutes. Add bell peppers & sweat for a few more minutes. Add tomatoes & bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to simmer for 5-10 minutes. Add beans (rinsed & drained first) & then simmer for 10-15 more minutes until everything is fully cooked/heated through. Salt to taste. And, finally, put in a cup/bowl & enjoy – yummy!
