SIX CAN CHILI

chiliI developed this recipe that may not be perfect from a health standpoint because you are using cans, but from a busy-working-mom standpoint, it couldn’t get more perfect!  You can use leftovers the next day as a topping for baked potatoes.

1 quart canned tomatoes or two cans diced tomatoes

1 can (15 oz) chili beans

1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans, drained

1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, drained

1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained

1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies

1 Tb chili powder

Combine all ingredients in crock pot, cook for several hours. Serve with tortilla chips, lettuce, tomatoes and olives on top.

Lentil Soup

1 onion, chopped

1/4 C olive oil

lentils 22 carrots, diced

2 stalks celery, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 t oregano

1 bay leaf

1 t basil

1 14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes

2 C dry lentils

8 C water

1/2 C spinach

2 T vinegar

Unrefined salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Heat oil in large pot and saute all veggies until tender.  Adds spices.  Cook for 2 minutes.  Stir in lentils, water and tomatoes.  Bring to boil and reduce heat and simmer for about an hour (or can put in a crock pot on low and cook 6-8 hours.)  When ready to serve add spinach, vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.  Serves 6.
