1 can (28 ounces) fire roasted diced tomatoes

2 cups vegetable broth

1/2 cup Grape-Nuts cereal

1 Tablespoon chili powder

1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes*

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.
