    Yield: Serves 6 to 8


    • 1 large onion, diced
    • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 28 0z can of diced tomatoes with their juice
    • 2 can of beans, drained and rinsed (I used 1 can of kidney and 1 can of black beans)
    • 1 cup of fresh or frozen corns
    • 1 tablespoons of cumin
    • 1 tablespoon of oregano
    • 2 tablespoons chili powder (more will be spicier)
    • 1 tablespoon of ancho chili powder
    • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt


    • 1 cup cooked quinoa or
    • 1 cup cubed tofu or
    • 1 cup crumbled tempeh


    1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add onion and sauté for about 3 minutes. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute more. Add spices and cook stirring for about 30 seconds.
    2. Add tomatoes and their juice and bring to a simmer. Once the chili begins to simmer, reduce the heat to medium low. You want the chili to be at a low simmer with the lid off.
    3. Continue to cook the chili, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Add beans and corn and let the chili return to a simmer. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the corn and beans have heated through.
    4. Serve on its own or topped with one (or all!) of the delicious toppings.
