Fall Chili Bean Soup

There’s nothing like a warm bowl of soup on a chilly night. Now that fall is in full swing, it’s time to break out the chili. This vegetarian version is very easy to make and delicious to eat!

1 onion, chopped
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 ½ teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 tablespoons diced green chilies
15 oz. can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
15 oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
5 cups water
3 tablespoons low fat sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

  • In a medium saucepan combine all ingredients with water, except for cilantro and sour cream.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer gently for 1 hour, until broth is creamy and beans are tender.
  • Remove from heat and add cilantro and sour cream.

Serves: 4-6

Total cooking time: 1 hour 10 minutes

The weather is cooler, a good time for chilli. Just heard on the news that the northern part of my province is getting 20 cm. of snow. Glad that it is just raining here, good for chilli.

That sounds fabulous, Catrin K.

That's true, Karen P.
