Margery's Five-Veggie Chili
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
diced small onion
diced bell pepper
1/2 lb. mushrooms, chopped small (portobello taste great!)
2 15-oz. cans diced tomatoes
black beans (about 1/2 lb dry, cooked into about 3-4 cups)
1 T. Chili powder
1 t. paprika
1 t. oregano
1 T. parsley
1 t. cumin
3/8 t. cayenne pepper, or to taste
1-2 cups water to thin, according to preference.
Saute first four ingredients in large skillet until meat is cooked through. Add all ingredients to large pot, and simmer 30 minutes or longer.
Top with cheese if desired. I hope you like this as much as we do!
