  • 2 extra-large sweet red roasted peppers, cut into 1/2 inch squares plus about 1/4 cup liquid from can
  • 40 ounces can light red kidney beans plus bean liquid from can (dark red kidney beans add too much texture)

  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon mild curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon Hungarian paprika (I used mild)

  • extra virgin olive oil
  • additional black pepper

Instructions

  1. In soup pot, over medium heat, melt margarine with olive oil. Add finely chopped mushrooms, salt, garlic powder and frozen chopped peppers and onion (or the fresh). Stir and cook till water releases from the mushrooms.
  2. Add red cabbage. Stir and cook till cabbage pales in color.
  3. Add pureed stewed tomatoes, roasted peppers plus 1/4 cup liquid, kidney and pinto beans, stirring after each addition.
  4. Add next 12 ingredients, up to and including freshly ground black pepper to taste, again stirring after each addition. Cover and cook on medium-low heat, or at a fizzle of a boil, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Remove cover, then cook 30 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, till beans lightly thicken broth, and flavors mute and meld. Turn heat off till ready to reheat and serve.

To serve:

  1. Reheat chili and adjust for salt. Ladle into soup bowls. Wrap spinach tortilla strips around fingers, then place decoratively on top of chili. Drizzle each serving with a little extra virgin olive oil; sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and serve.
