Vegetarian Chili

I dice then saute onions, celery and garlic in olive oil and add kosher salt. Once the veggies have softened, I add a large can of diced tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce. I also add a few tbsps of tomato paste. Then, I add the spices: chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, salt, bay leaves, a few dashes of hot sauce (Ryan likes Louisiana Hot Sauce), and my secret ingredient: sugar! The sugar cuts through the acidity of the tomatoes and adds a sweet note to the spicy chili. I let the tomatoes soak up all those spices for at least an hour on low heat. 20 minutes before serving, I add a can of chili beans. You only need to heat the beans through, not cook them since they’re already cooked, and leaving them in the chili too long will make the beans mushy and fall apart. I serve my chili (Hawaiian style) with rice, but you can also serve chili with noodles or a baked potato, and add cheddar cheese, avocado, corn and/or sour cream for added yum!
