In a large pot, saute over medium heat the onion, carrots, celery, bell pepper and garlic until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the spices and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in the beans, tomato sauce, tomatoes, and vegetable stock. Cook, partially covered, until thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir in the corn and cook for 5 minutes. Remove bay leaves and serve.

One good way to serve the chili is with tortillas, salsa and sour cream.
