Tasty Tuesday: Wicked Good Spices Vegetarian Chili

Today’s recipe is from my friend Rachel at Wicked Good Spice Mixes Co.  I was introduced to their amazing products at the Brick Farmer’s Market about two years ago.  Their spot was a must every week.  From flavored vinegar to organic olive oil to spice mixes.  The best part is they have a multitude of uses for some of their products.  Who would have ever thought of using flavored vinegar in seltzer water for a refreshing drink?

I made this YUMMY recipe this week.   I will admit, I had a brain fog MS day and despite having the directions in front of me I forgot the spaghetti squash, and the tomato paste BUT the end result was still delicious!

 Ingredients:

  • 1 medium butternut squash; sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash (peeled & diced)
  • 2 large onions, diced
  • 1 each of diced orange, yellow, and red bell pepper
  • 2 whole heads of garlic, diced
  • 4 tablespoons of wicked good wild canyon pepper blend/ or pigs can fly blend (add more spice if you like more heat)
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 24oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1 8oz can of tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil

Directions:

  1. Place olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat
  2. Add onions and garlic.  Saute
  3. Add bell peppers, sweet potato and squash. Sauté until soft
  4. Add wicked good spices wild canyon pepper blend or pigs can fly. Mix thoroughly
  5. Add corn, crushed tomatoes and tomato paste
  6. Stir to blend
  7. Cook on low heat for 30 minutes or until squash is fork tender
The main reason the company was started was to show people how easy, healthy and fun it can be to make a delicious meal at home!  Rachel always thought the hardest thing about cooking is how much of this spice and how much of that spice you should add.  So go ahead and throw all of those spices you use infrequently and start using our spice blends! They are fresh and economical!  Our blends are perfectly formulated to use for just about everything you like to cook.
