|4 larges||Onions; chopped|
|1 large||Green pepper; seeded and chopped|
|½ cup||Water or veggie stock|
|1 tablespoon||Mustard seeds|
|1 tablespoon||Chili powder|
|1 teaspoon||Cumin seeds|
|1 teaspoon||Unsweetened cocoa|
|¼ teaspoon||Ground cinnamon|
|1 can||(1 lb.) chopped tomatoes|
|5 cups||Cooked kidney beans plus|
|1½ cup||Cooking liquid; or 3 cans 16 oz. kidney beans undrained and 1 cup of water|
|1 can||(6 oz) tomatoe paste|
In a 5 or 6 quart kettle, I use my cast iron dutch oven, cook onions and green pepper over medium high heat using the stock until the onions are golden and pepper is soft. Add mustard seeds and cook stirring for a couple of minutes. Add chili powder, cumin seeds, cocoa, cinnamon, tomatoes undrained, beans and their liquid and tomatoe paste. Reduce heat and simmer rapidly uncovered for about 40 minutes or until most of the liquid has cooked away and chili is thickened; stir frequently to prevent scorching.
