Drunken vegetarian chili.


Hey all, I wanted to do a quick blog for you because i made a great tasting “experiment”. We here in Alberta are in the middle of winter, and there are many ways that we try to stay warm and one of the ways is chili! I decided i would make a black bean chili, and just started throwing veggies on the counter with no real plan. I did decide to do something rash and use a whole bottle of malbec…something i have never done before and still do not know why i did it but i’m glad i did. Recipe below:

  • 2 green peppers
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 carrots
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 3 cups black beans
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cup kale chopped
  • 2 tbls harrisa paste
  • 1 bottle of Malbec (red wine)
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 Tbls chili powder
  • 1 Tbls onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 cup corn
  • large can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup salsa


    • Soak beans for 24 hours then rinse
    • Saute’ veggies until soft
    • Add bottle of wine, tomatoes, harrisa paste, beans, and salsa
    • Add spices to taste
    • Simmer until beans are soft
    • Add kale about half hour before serving.

Add water as needed.

Enjoy this great dish to keep you warm this winter.
