1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
1-1/3 cups chopped red & yellow bell peppers
7 tsp chili powder
1-1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1/2 cup no-calorie granulated sweetener
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes in tomato puree
1 (19 oz) can black beans, undrained
2 (19 oz) cans dark red kidney beans, undrained
1 (19 oz) can cannellini or great northern beans, undrained
1 (10 oz) box frozen whole kernel corn
1. In a large, non stick, stock pot heat olive oil. Saute jalapeno pepper, onion, and red and yellow peppers over medium heat until onions are translucent (5-8 minutes).
2. Add the remaining ingredients and slowly bring to a boil. Cover pot and simmer over low heat for at least 20 minutes. Serve hot. Chili tastes best when allowed to sit overnight. Refrigerate chili in covered pot overnight. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly.
NOTE: (If hotter chili is preferred, increase the ground cayenne red pepper to 1 teaspoon, and increase the chili powder to 7 teaspoons. If sweeter chili is preferred, increase sweetener to 2/3 cup).
