Ingredients

Chili:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 chipotle peppers*, finely chopped
  • 1 can (28 ounces) fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans
  • 1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup Grape Nuts Cereal
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes*
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Optional toppings:

  • Reduced-fat cheddar cheese, reduced-fat sour cream, green onion, additional Grape-Nuts cereal

Directions

Reduced-fat cheddar cheese, reduced-fat sour cream, green onion, additional Grape-Nuts cereal

Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium high heat; add celery, onion and bell pepper. Cook, stirring, until vegetables soften, about 3 minutes. Add garlic; cook, stirring, 1 minute.

Stir in chipotle peppers, tomatoes, black and cannellini beans, vegetable broth, Grape-Nuts cereal, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, thyme, red pepper flakes and black pepper to taste.

Heat to a boil over medium-high heat; lower heat to a simmer. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, 20 minutes.

*Note: If you prefer a spicier chili, keep the seeds inside the chipotle peppers and use 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes. If you prefer a milder version, remove the seeds from the chipotle peppers before adding them to the chili and use only 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes.
