Print Recipe


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 1 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 2 15.5 oz cans kidney or pinto beans drained


  • In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion, minced garlic, bell pepper, and jalapeno. Sauté until they become soft and fragrant.
  • Add in the spices, salt & pepper to taste, and tomato paste and cook for another minute to release their flavors.
  • Next, add the diced tomatoes and the drained and rinsed beans to the pot.
    Stir everything together and let it simmer for about 20-30 minutes. This will allow the flavors to meld together and the chili to thicken slightly.
  • Once the chili has simmered to perfection, it's ready to be served.
    Ladle it into bowls and garnish with your favorite toppings, such as avocado slices, chopped cilantro, or a dollop of vegan sour cream.
