Let's get started!

Easy Vegetable Chili Recipe with Homemade Bread Bowls:
*Prep Time:  10 minutes  *Cook Time: 30 minutes *Difficulty: Easy  *Servings:  4-6

Ingredients:


The ingredients needed for the Easy Vegetable Chili.

  • 1 24 oz. can of MANWHICH
  • 1 10 oz. can of RO*TEL Tomatoes, mild
  • 1 15 oz. can of Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 1 Zucchini, diced
  • 1 Carrot, diced
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp. Cumin
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1/4 c. Brown Sugar
  • 1 Loaf of Frozen Bread Dough, thawed 

The onion, garlic, carrot, and zucchini chopped and ready to be added to the pot.

To begin, I like to chop all of my vegetables.
This just keeps the cooking process a little easier once things get going.

A sauce pot, on the stove, with olive oil in it.

Next, place a sauce pot over a medium/high heat and add a little extra virgin olive oil.

diced onion being added to the pot on the stove.

Once the sauce pot is hot, add the onion and cook 2-3 minutes, until they are soft and translucent.

Garlic being added to the pot on the stove.

Now add the garlic to the sauce pot.
Cook just until you smell it coming from the pan.

The carrots and zucchini being added to the pot on the stove.

Now add the carrot and zucchini.
Cook for 3 minutes to allow them to begin to soften and get tender.

Salt being added to the pot.

Now add the salt.
I used 1 tsp.

Pepper being added to the pot.

And pepper, I used 1/2 tsp.

Chili powder being added to the pot.

Along with the chili powder...

Cumin being added to the pot.

And the cumin.
Stir everything together so that it is well coated in the spices.
Doing this awakens the oils that may have gone a little dormant in the jar, on the shelf.

A can of beans being added to the pot.

Now it is time to add the beans,

Ro*Tel tomoatoes being added to the pot.

RO*TEL tomatoes,

Manwich being added to the pot.

And MANWHICH to the sauce pot.

Brown sugar being added to the pot.

And for my personal taste, I like to add a little brown sugar.

Chili simmering in the pot, on the stove.

Now bring the chili to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes.

Now let's talk about these bread bowls.

The steps to making the bread bowls.

I learned this trick from my friend Melissa.  It is world changing, and you will be serving your soups in bread bowls from now on!

Easy Homemade Bread Bowls:

  1. Thaw one loaf of frozen bread dough overnight in the refrigerator.  
  2. Cut the dough into tree parts. 
  3. Roll the three parts into nice balls, and place on a making sheet. 
  4. Cover with a damp towel and let rise for two hours. 
  5. Next place in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.
  6. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  7. Hollow out the center, and serve your favorite soup in them.
HOW EASY IS THAT!?!
Now back to our chili...
