I got this recipe from a friend I had in Seattle. It's been a family favorite for almost seven years now! Makes a great burrito filling, too!
1 green pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1-2 jalapenos, minced
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
3 cans black beans (leave starch in one can)
3 tomatoes or 2 cans tomatoes, chopped
1 can corn (without sugar), drained
Mild chili powder
At this time, start to boil the water for the rice (Basmati is the best for this dish). It takes 35 minutes for the rice to simmer. When the rice is done, the chili is done (about 45-50 minutes for the chili). You can cook the chili longer if you prefer.
